About the CD

The creative musician is constantly searching for new directions in sound Leading this quest is master pianist Richard Bennett. In this album 'Rhapsody in Yaman', he continues his musical exploration in pianistic and compositional avenues, seamlessly traveling between west and east. He brings the four sublime ragas, Yaman, Bhairavi, Vachaspati and Lalit, into new light with jazz harmonies and movement, and further enlivens them with breath and rhythm by his chosen ensemble.

Jusight into the Pusion…
• And Then, Alone is a beautiful ballad of flute and piano with a subtle dumbek accompaniment
. • Rhapsody in Yaman starts with a majestic solo piano introduction, followed by yaman themes, languorously developed by flute and piano over the calm yet pulsating rhythms of the ensemble.
• The Lion Throne is a catchy melody played over an afro-pop rhythm of bass and conga.
• Raga Bhairavi- Alap is a moody jugalbandhi of piano and sarod.
• Adi Anta is also a piano, sarod duo with a rousing melody in a fast tempo.
• One Lie, One Heart is an exquisite instrumental featuring Richard Bennett on the plaintive sounding melodica.
• She Turns in Sleep features the mysterious and profound raga lalit.
• Raga Vachaspati - Alap is a duo of Debussy-nspred piano and Bansuriflute.
• Mambo Nawaz is an Indian-Cuban fusion. The talented tabla player Naren Budhkar is the mambo nawaz, holding down a super groove, as weU as taking a classical solo.
• Soma is an infectiously jazzy number featuring the acoustic bass.

About the Artist

It is during my recent trip to India that the inspiation to compose music for this album stirred my heart. And then began the journey to bring together those who are attuned to shape it up with their touch of music. I started with the trio format of my debut album with Mystica Music 'Raga a Blues'. Steve Gron was my first choice for this album. He is truly a marvelous flautist, equally adept in Hindustani Classical and Western Jazz. His way with melody is sublime. Then I Fortuitously met sarod expert Siddarth Dayama just few days before the recording. He has a beautiful tone and a refined sensibility. To top it up, the famed percussionist Paula Jeanine has added her infectious groove to several tracks. Powerhouse bassist Gaku Takanashi and the talented tabla player Naren Budhkar too were roped in from Raga a Blues. All these brilliant musicians have poured their hearts and souls into the making of 'Rhapsody in Yaman', lending a rnesrnerisng experience to the listener.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
