Sarod, the 25-stringed North Indian classical instrument rich in resonances, plays well with others, but is best savored solo. Master player Alam Khan knows this, having studied at his father Ustad Ali Akbar Khan’s knee and taking up his style and lineage. On Immersion, he unfurls the instrument’s stirring beauty via several ragas, a tribute to his family’s accumulated knowledge and his own carefully honed artistic sense.

Sie machten den Kasatschok in deutschen Diskotheken salonfähig und wurden von Ralph Siegel eigens für die Teilnahme am Grand Prix gegründet: Vor 30 Jahren stürmten Dschinghis Khan die Hitparaden. Schlagerpapst Ralph Siegel bewies schon vor 30 Jahren ein Händchen für Bands mit Wiedererkennungswert. 1979 gründete und produzierte er die Kultband Dschinghis Khan, deren Superhits Dschinghis Khan und Moskau bis heute auf keiner guten Schlagerparty fehlen dürfen. Für ihre ausgefallenen Choreografien und Kostüme erhielt die Band 1980 sogar einen Bambi.

Almost stereotypically overreaching early-'70s progressive rock; quasi-operatic vocals, spinning guitar solos, lengthy suite-like tracks on the order of "Stargazers" and "Hollow Stone (incl. Escape of the Space Pilots)." The highlight is Stewart's effervescent organ work during the gentle and meditative passages. An obscure footnote of early-'70s British art rock, Khan featured guitarist Steve Hillage, keyboardist Dave Stewart, and ex-Crazy World of Arthur Brown bassist Nick Greenwood. Their sole album from 1972 was dominated by Hillage's lengthy, ambitious compositions and Stewart's organ, which owed much to the Canterbury Scene of British prog rock.

Bat For Lashes leader Natasha Khan has collaborated on the score for the supernatural new miniseries Requiem. Composer Dominik Scherrer worked with Khan on the foreboding, string-heavy arrangements. The show’s funereal theme, “Aigra,” does indeed sound like something that could work as part of a Requiem mass. Bat for Lashes’ last album, The Bride, was released in 2016.

Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Rufus & Chaka Khan. It doesn't really matter what name is used because the result is the same: solid grooves, arresting melodies, and the overwhelming vocals of Chaka Khan. This album spawned a Top Five Billboard R&B hit with "Stay," a song with a moderate tempo and a very humble beginning that bows to an explosive plea from Khan. It reached number three on the charts after 18 weeks. "Blue Love" has that seesaw rhythm that swings from midtempo to uptempo but is controlled by Khan's delivery. It slipped into the Top 40 at number 34 in a short nine weeks. This project could have easily supported additional releases with songs like the engaging "Stranger to Love," the jazzy "Destiny," and "Best of Your Heart."

Intermittently on the road as an acoustic duo between gaps in the schedules of their respective ultra-hip fusion bands, Larry Coryell and Steve Khan managed to record several shows and then panned the tape stream to find the nuggets for posterity. There are choices that might have been made out of the fashions of the day, such as the version of Chick Corea's "Spain" that opens the album's first side. Thankfully there are also selections that are here because both guitarists must have realized they were playing magnificently.

Raga Marwa/Raga Bhairavi is a 1995 CD by Ustad Sultan Khan. The CD is simply listed under his instrument, Sarangi, but since he released a few other discs on the India Archive Series label with the same name, I am using the name of the two ragas featured. "Raga Marwa" is divided into four indexed tracks while "Raga Bhairavi" is heard as one track. Khan is joiend by Anuradha Pal on tabla and Mrs. Paro Shah on tanpura.
