Nana Simopoulos - Wings and Air [1986]



Jazz with world music influences featuring Nana Simopoulos on guitar and vocals, Charlie Haden on bass, Don Cherry on Trumpet, Nana Vasconcelos on percussion, Jim Pepper in Saxophone.
 Nana's sitar playing alone makes it well worth purchasing! Her vocal work on the compositions adds a dimension of inspiration and spirit that elevate this album far above the "just another" classification. Ms. Simopoulos is a master at using silence to heighten the energies of a song.
 Nana Simopoulos takes the road less traveled. She is determined to stay mysterious. There is mystery on every track. It's sometimes pushed along by subtle Middle Eastern rhythms, sometimes by shimmering like still waters that run deep. Dive in and let the magic begin.

Thanks for the comment high fidelity.
I think she's a bit underestimated,even though she made some beautiful records and played with well-known musicians,like on this one.
