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.
