Notes & Reviews:

Roy, famous for his recordings on Indian drums for Miles Davis and Ornette Coleman, returns in this audiophile recording made in Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. He joins his cousin, Gupta who plays the Nathan Milstein Stradivarius violin from 1716. Not only is Gupta superbly talented and the youngest member of the LA Philharmonic, but he is also a Senior TED fellow, executive director of Street Symphony (which brings music to homeless mentally ill people) Roy premiers Calcutta Sunrise for tabla solo on the opening track. Even before the album's release, Calcutta Sunrise won the Audio Oasis Award at the 2012 THE SHOW in Newport.
