Not bad for what it is

Pandi Shankar had such a long life as a performer, with many uniquely creative records, that it’s almost impossible to create a compilation that gives listeners of a comprehensive, concise taste of them all. This release attempts to do that with mixed success.. We hear Shankar’s devout testament to tradition in his classic ragas, the chart favorites like “Friar Park,” his experimentation with synth accompaniment, as well as his ‘bridges’ to other genres such as classical violin. This release does not successfully encompass every musical river he waded, but we do get a toe-in-the-water taste of his versatility and variety.
