RIP USTAD ABDUL HALIM JAFFAR KHAN 1927-2017

Ashamed to admit I was unaware that Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan passed on last week. Some of his records are among my favourite sitar albums and this cassette from 1989 features 13 typically exquisite tracks. Enjoy.

Tabla accompaniment is from Ustad Nizamuddin Khan. This tape is also hosted over at the fantastic http://oriental-traditional-music.blogspot.co.uk/ for which many thanks. RIP


CURRENT LISTENING JANUARY 2017

Putting these here as a note to myself so I don't forget - a few new things and a couple that sneaked in at the tail-end of 2016 too late for my best-of-the-year lists. Currently these are the only things digging me out of the Miles Agharta/Pangaea/Dark Magus/Complete On The Corner Sessions Box I currently can't seem to stop scurrying down . . . . .
