Brooklyn Raga Massive is a collective of musicians rooted in Indian classical music. That tradition rarely involves an ensemble larger than three or four players. Sitarist Neel Murgai identified Terry Riley's canonical minimalist composition In C—an open scored collection 53 short musical phrases that the players repeat and move through at their own pace—as an accessible way for a large number of Indian musicians to play together. This album is a live concert recording with 18 players. The instrumentation is sitar, sarod, bansuri, vocals, tabla, hammered dulcimer, oud, violin, cello, upright bass, dragon mouth trumpet, guitar, cajon, riq and frame drum.

Because of their enormous size, elephants have long been irresistible for kings as symbols of their eminence. In early civilizations—such as Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Indus Civilization, and China—kings used elephants for royal sacrifice, spectacular hunts, public display of live captives, or the conspicuous consumption of ivory—all of them tending toward the elephant’s extinction. The kings of India, however, as Thomas R. Trautmann shows in this study, found a use for elephants that actually helped preserve their habitat and numbers in the wild: war.

This is Chris Daniels & The Kings 15 album, and our second with Freddi Gowdy. As we’ve toured blues festivals over the US and Europe I’ve noticed that the old tradition of horns is disappearing. At a blues & brews in Greeley I met one young blues-fan who’d been standing and staring at us. He came up after our set and asked me why I called our music ‘funky blues’ – a name festivals and European fans use to describe our music. He was a traditionalist and thought blues was 12-bars, guitar and maybe harp, but not sax, trumpet and horns. I gave him my email and suggested he listen to Bobby Blue Bland, Johnny Taylor, Albert King, Walter Wolf Man Washington, Gatemouth Brown and a host of incredible artists who’s use of horns is as essential to their music as a guitar is to Sonny Landreth.

Considered one of the city's most notorious industrial slums in the 1940s and 1950s, Brownstone Brooklyn by the 1980s had become a post-industrial landscape of hip bars, yoga studios, and beautifully renovated, wildly expensive townhouses.
