Paolo Tofani was the great, great guitarist of the great, great Italian avant/progressive rock ensemble Area. This album of 'acoustic tricanta veena' music (Veena is a Indian stringed instrument) was recorded in India and is an interesting and great blend of Indian music and avant-guitaring sounds.

Unconditionally recommended if you like Indian music. Conditionally recommended if you like Area.

How did he manage to get this quote? I don't know. But Greg's 100% right.

"This is a work of considerable quality. I am not knowledgeable about Indian music, but even I can see that this is far more than just some hopeful pretender. I very much like the deep, improvisational, almost free approach and the music does communicate on an emotional level. The playing of course is superb."-Greg Lake
