Default Shakti - Indo-Jazz fusion

... And Remember Shakti. Since Micrologus has expressed an interest, I thought I'd post some clips of maybe the greatest example of Indo-Jazz fusion.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O127hEVA9G0&feature=related"]YouTube - Shakti - Joy (Montreux, 1976)[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyCH70FODJA"]YouTube - John Mclaughlin: Remember Shakti: Ma No Pa[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBd-rXsFOhQ&feature=related"]YouTube - Shakti India John McLaughlin, Zakir Hussein. Shankar,Vikku[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AzovMu-2LY&feature=related"]YouTube - John Mclaughlin SHAKTI le danse du bonheur[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7h2uL8lk2lM&feature=related"]YouTube - John McLaughlin and Shakti[/ame]


And whilst at it I'll take the advantage of posting up another example of Indo-Jazz fusion, in my opinion just as great, but unfortunately only short-lived:

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax02a5q-hNE&feature=related"]YouTube - Shawn Lane - Savitri[/ame]

I'm not really a fan of "World Music" on the grounds that it's a daft label. I know that Holst wrote The Planets and Mozart a "Jupiter" Symphony, but where the hell do they think the rest of the stuff comes from? Alpha Centauri? The Asteroid Belt? The Magellanic Clouds?

That said, I've always been keen on Shakti, not least because I'm a big John McLaughlin fan. I'm also a big fan of John Mayer's Indo-Jazz Fusions, and especially love the first three albums. (Trivia note: John McLaughlin's first Mahavishnu bassist, Rick Laird, plays on the first of these, the Indo-Jazz Suite, even though the CD reissue erroneously credits Coleridge Goode (who played on its successors).)

Maybe non-Western music would be better?

I can hardly call this 'Worldmusic'

Just call it by it's name: Indian Jazz

You mean I shouldn't have posted it in this section?

I wouldn't consider the sanitized version of Bulgarian music, 'Les Voix Bulgares', with all the spice taken out of it to make it accessible to western audiences and suitable for TV appearances, 'world music'.

The clips I posted have just as much, if not more, in common with Indian music as Jazz.

Sanitized or not, 'Les voix Bulgares' are singing traditional Bulgarian songs

The clips I posted feature uncorrupted Indian classical musicians.

Most the clips are based on traditional ragas. For example, 'Ma No Pa', the second video, is based on Abhogi (if I'm not mistaken).

It's certainly an improvement, although I've seen CDs by Jacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg filed in the "World Music" sections of big record shops in London!
