I was invited to drop some tunes at a friends house party last monday, celebrating the start of "Golden Week" Japan`s longest holiday. Well it was the kind of party where not many people decided to turn up for some unknown reason and it kind of let us djocks loose to drop about anything we felt inspired too!
One such track was this...which a certain lovable character called M-rah, nearly wet himself over!...I didn`t tell him what it was, I know such bad form of me. But told him i would post it up here....hey we all need the blog hits!!
Anyway...this track has been an enduring love affair for me for so long and one of the most inspiring rare groovey tunes ever in my humble opinion.
Asha Puthli`s special gift is her sultry, four-octave soprano voice that has been described by scholar Niranjan Jhaveri in the following manner: "The ability to manipulate her voice and to introduce certain glissando effects embellishments and textures descend directly from Asha's training in the Indian classical idiom. Her improvisations are the envy of the best instrumental technicians in jazz."
Space Talk is lifted off her 1976 release "The devil is loose" on CBS records....enjoy!
