Description du produit
In early 2004 Krishna Das asked Walter Becker to work with him on an album that would include only one Chant / Mantra and would flow musically through various traditions in the style of a Suite. Walter, whose work with Steely Dan includes some of the seminal recordings of the last 50 years agreed and said 'Only someone with such a warped sense of humor like me would get into a crazy 'hindoo' scene like this.' Recorded in three days in November 2004 at Avatar Studios in New York, a choir of 70 and an orchestra of 20, Krishna Das (Vocals and Harmonium), Walter Becker (Bass / Co-producer), Def Leppard's Rick Allen (Drums), Ty Burhoe (Tabla) and David Nichtern (Guitar, Co-producer and well known composer 'Midnight at the Oasis'). The result: A Mantric Suite in 4 Parts that seamlessly evolves from Western Classical to Indian to Rock n Roll to South African Township.
Biographie de l'artiste
Krishna Das spent his early musical years leaning towards jazz, blues and rock and roll. When his spiritual path took him to India he was naturally attracted to the spiritual aspects of the Indian culture. Further travels that took him to the Far East and Africa continued to influence his musical perceptions adding new flavors and broadening his horizons. He has absorbed these influences, in particular Indian devotional music, and has translated this music for a western audience. In 1990 Krishna Das founded Triloka Records. Early travels became the foundation for his work as a producer, musician, singer and songwriter and as head of A&R for the label, Krishna Das plays a pivotal role in establishing Trlloka Records as a vehicle to enable artists to offer their indigenous traditions to a new global audience. 'When I was living in India I heard much kirtan (chanting). I found that I could listen to the singers and sense the depth of their connection with God through the purity of their devotional singing. Krishna Das is an example of someone whose heartsongs open the channels to God.' - Ram Dass

Krishna Das is a master at creating conscious connections between 'sound' and the heart. The standout quality in All One is the way these connections are initially subtle, and then melodiously the tempo is increased until at times, I experience a complete change in my state of being. The technical description of the beats and styles of the four tracks are really superfluous; ultimately its the feeling of Oneness that is engendered by the whole package that counts.
If this is your first introduction to Krishna Das you might find the continual invocation slightly frustrating because of course, KD is capable of so much variety. If that is the case - go for it and purchase Door of Faith and his Greatest Hits - you can't lose either way. So be aware it is a full on hour of Hare Krishna Hare Rama chanting.

Like all rivers, All One begins clean and clear. The first track contains minimal instrumental accompaniment and some of the purest strains of KD's vocals. Like a small stream, its energy builds. Tabla, harmonium, and delicate percussion are woven together with the characteristic call and response of classical kirtan. In the second track violin and piano take a prominent place in the melody, filling it out and intensifying the mood as the river winds into a deep, unfathomable pool. Then, in the third track, we're riding the rapids and having a blast with electric guitar and a full drum set. KD is great fun here accompanied by the ambrosial harmonizing vocals of the "Pointless Sisters" who fully express the joy of life's play. Finally, the fourth track is the shower of bliss at the end of the ride, a bright and celebratory tribute to African sound.
I highly recommend this album to anyone who is ready to listen from the heart. Om Shanthi, and enjoy the ride.
In my opinion, KD isn't really a musician per se like Jai Uttal who plays numerous instruments and has a vocal range. KD is a kirtan singer who accompanies himself on harmonium. Having said that, KD does what he does very well and really manifests the devotion in his music.
One gripe I have with alot of devotional music like this is the production value; a bit hollow sounding a often boring, but probably great for a yoga class. This isn't the case on this release. Steely Dan's Walter Becker's bass playing really carries the music as does Def Leppard's Rick Allen's drumming, especially in the last two cuts which are the most energetic. The acoustic quitar accompanyment is nice and not instrusive or distracting as is often the case with kirtans and I really like the saranghi and cello you hear off and on.
The four variations or movements of the Hare Krishna maha mantra are essentially the same melody with different emphasis and "feel" to them. The first is the mellowest(but not slow)with minimal accompaniment. The second picks up the pace and adds a few instruements. The third (my favorite)really rocks with the bass and drumming. The fourth stays energetic and has a slight South African Township feel to it. Each track starts off slowly then builds in tempo and ends slowly so the whole cd has an ebb and flow feel to it.
If you don't like the Hare Krishna mantra then you won't like this cd because that is what it is, but it isn't just 56 minutes of the same thing by any means. If you need variety then go for any of his other cd's except Door of Faith. I love this cd for driving, exercising, or just feeling good. Though it is quite energetic, it easily maintains a very devotional feeling throughout.
