I think you've just described your comment perfectly.

Once again Harry thank you for not singing, scatting, or if you want to call it new age rapping.
Reminds me of Prem Joshua, an artist sadly missing from RP playlists
LOVE Harry Manx

Give bless
Producer: "We don't have enough material to fill your album."
Engineer: "Why don't you play Jazz Oddysey."
Manx: "Naw. I got another one that goes nowhere."
RP: "Perfect! Gimme that track!"
someone pass the naan, please.

For a minute I thought this was Jai Uttal!

Suddenly I smell incense.

Nice change of pace for a weekday morning.

I guess that's another couple of reasons I wish I lived on Salt Spring.

 

,,,everything that you have, made out of metal, will rust before your very eyes. Stored a '47 Harley with a friend for 2 years while in a transitional period. What a loss that was.

I think the album title is a pun, a play on words:
west eats meet - west meets east, both makes sense in a way...{#Whisper}
LOVE IT< YES !!
Love it's mystery!
 Not from me - but I Love this

All day has been grey and slow.  Hard music to work to.  Up tempo on occasion can be very nice.  {#Devil_pimp}

It's callled a 'Mohan Veena' after it's creator and looks like a regular guitar - only it's got a whack of sympathetic strings which resonate or can be strummed (the silvery sound). The whammy is all Harry's fingers and a tad of talent
 
Thanks for that info, Terry - the silvery glissando really makes this number IMO. 8 from the swaying Nottingham jury.
I'm diggin' this big time.
It grows.  and grows.  better every time I hear it
This is very cool. Thanks for playing!

Like this kind of music! Very nice song!

Dear Cheese,  are you the cheese or is the music?  What exactly does that deep statement refer to.  If you're an aspiring critic,  I have to wonder what your cheese angle is on this tune.  I enjoy this work (like a fine french camenbert)  from Mr. Manx and wonder where your cheese is made?  You are perhaps a cheddar man. By the way, the instrument he's playing is a 20 stringed instrument which Manx spent 12 years in India to learn..... some cheese in India is called 'Ghee" ?  The composition is his as is the arrangements.  What magnificent cheese-man-ship.  This CD was nominated for CD of the Year in Canada   (home of fine cheddar)  
 
Ghee is clarified butter, unless there's a cheesy kind that I don't know about.

Really like his work. Bought the CD after hearing it here for the first time.
Manx is one cool cat...

Cool!  Very interesting!

*9* Mr Harry's Manx serene solo sound is enhanced with decorative elements of tabla, dholak and keys, Ms. Emily Braden backing vocals newcomer  and Australian trio The Heavenly Lights. Original songs delve into Harry's experiences from Rajasthan to Toronto to Brazil and beyond a nod both to an Indian musical giant and Manx's own western usage. *9 *{#Arrowu} *10 * no comment*

Wow, I didn't realize these are the same people who did Shadow Of The Whip, I like these people.

I like how the notes bend and linger on the microtones
I just love this artist. :hearteyes:

RP suffers from a massive case of grade inflation. 6.5 is halfway between "Pretty Good" and "Quite Likable" which is where I see this song as belonging.

Love Harry! So original!

Great mingling of sounds, and lots of small surprises in the direction. I think there is a straight sitar playing in there -The Oracle at AMG tells us that Harry manx studied and toured with a sitar master in India. I like it.
Not a sitar, but a Mohan Vina named after Harry's mentor during the seven years he spent in India learning how to play this beast. It looks like a regular guitar, but has a raft of sympathetic strings on the upside neck (OK I'm not a picker) which can also be strummed for the shimmering sound on some of his tracks. Ubercool dude.
Im really enjoying this...a prety unique fusion, using the blues scale instead of a traditional raga (at least I think that was what was going on)...wonderful.
diggin this pickin wizard

Great song title.
Weird - I am making curry chicken as we spoeak...
Another fine segue
Is this the chinese song Tu-ning?
:shhh: where 's Ravi? that's so beautiful...
Thanks Bill for another artist I would not have known about if it wasn't for RP. Caught HM the other week in DC - he has such a smooth style - nice guy too. Had a dang good harmonica player with him. Audience was from 8 to 80 and everyone loved it.
From "Within You Without You" to "Forgive and Remember".. can dub this "the sitar segue"
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned that this is used regularly on NPR's The World.
you again?
Bill is in the Persian corner today. (Earlier we had Sixteen Horsepower and Joe Strummer - Mondo Bondo)

His name is spelled John McLaughin and the band you are refering to was called Shakti which I believe he formed after The Mahavishnu Orchestra. The only Shakti album I had was a live one (on vinyl) and it was aboslutely amazing. Harry Manx's music is definitely in the same spirit but McLaughin's guitar work is in a league of its own...
I just did a search on Amazon.com for "Shakti" and found a whole bunch of Shakti/John McLaughin hits. (Remember to make any Amazon.com orders through the link here on RP so they get some benefit!)

Oh, very nicely done, Bill! Wonderful segue from Sgt. Pepper's "Within You Without You". You should really add a way to rate song combinations, as well as just individual songs.
I guess Bill likes this segue. First on Nov 21st... now the same segue on Dec 6th.

Cool, different, entrancing, a cool jam. Great sitar. :guitarist: :cool:
Nice!!

Bill you sure get into a wonderful space with 'the music'. Thanks Jmrz

At first I thought this was John McGloughlin -- from those albums he did in the late 70s. I think one was called Shiva. McGloughlin had a great Indian violinist along with his blistering guitar riffs.

bummer. they don't have it.

Sounds good to me. Might be nice mixed next to some Benji Wertheimer.
Love this Eastern groove... (Follows Within Without You)
This got my attention.....

Almost. Copper mines.
Good artist. I like the indian instruments. I want to learn how to play the tabla. They say you need a guru though, not books. mmmm, I'll have to see about that.
Bill has me trained. Two notes and I recognized Harry Manx. This guy is great.

Nice to hear this side of Manx. Had heard his other stuff with vocals and liked it. This is pretty trippy-dreamy.

No, it is a Mohan Veena. Invented by Vishwa Mohan Bhatt it combines drone and sympathetic strings of the sitar with body similar to Hawiian guitar played with a slide. Harry studied with Vishwa.
I stand corrected. Very interesting.

Well, Kelly Joe Phelps certainly doesn't come to mind when listening to this one.

Mohan Veena , maybe?
I found myself chin in hand, elbow to desk, eyes closed, head waving back and forth with the beat... How did I get here? Lulled and mesmerized to be sure. Quality of the music? I'm not sure I care. Is that a good or bad thing? I don't seem to have the energy to decide... ... ........................... back & forth, side to side, side to side .......... ...

Knowing that Harry Manx is much better than the slow rhythm played here then I know that he was shooting more for effect than musical picking speed. He's really quite good. This isn't a sitar or a guitar but a very unique instrument.
YOU GUYS ARE WAY TOO CRITICAL... SOUNDS GOOD TO ME..
...Thought they'd pull a Manx after that BEATLES tune....

okay. maybe if I were blissed out on the acupuncturist's table I would like this better.
nice work of strings
