The Definitive Trilok Gurtu - Released on Manteca - 13th August

Trilok Gurtu is a musician’s musician who has long since left behind boundaries that limit lesser players. At various points in his career he may have been described as an Indian musician, Jazz musician and World musician but there is truly no category that can fully claim or contain him.

This compilation of his work was chosen by the man himself – and a brief run through a list of some of the musicians featured here alongside him tells its own story.

We have Don Cherry, Joe Zawinul, Jan Garbarek, Zakir Hussein, Oumou Sangare, Neneh Cherry, the Arke String Quartet, Tuvan throat singers Huun Huur Tu, Angelique Kidjo, Pharaoh Sanders, John McLaughlin and Trilok’s late mother, the light classical star Shobha Gurtu, who sadly passed away in 2004.

The man is obviously obsessed with colours, tones and rhythms while never neglecting melody, and as much as he is a musician respected by other musicians he brings passion, vision and craft that is accessible to anyone.
