    Default CURRIED JAZZ The Indo British Ensemble

    Anyone have this record, is it any good?
    Looks kinda nice, and it's cheap I believe, always thought about picking it up.

    Thumbs up

    Yeah, I'd say it was a good record (assuming you are into that indo-jazz fusion kind of thing).. prices vary widely, so be careful ! I'm sure some of the UK VV'ers should be able to trade you a copy...??



    Personally, I prefer "Ragas & Reflections" on Saga.. Same kinda thing, just I prefer the tracks...
    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    On a linked point, I prefer Moe's Curried Soul by Moe Koffman (on Kama Sutra). It even has a recipe on the back of the sleeve.

    and a good version of high heeled sneakers.

    Teddy, I have it. It's an OK jazz record.

    i haven't listened to this lp in years, but i always thought that it was very underrated. Maybe something to do with its exploito title and it being on MFP. Anyway, well worth it for Kenny Wheeler's top class input.

    My all time fave Indo-British colab has to be COSMIC EYE on Regal - genius

    Already on the subject of indo jazz. Maybe someone can share some light on this track:

    "Bombay Palace part 1" by Muhavishla Ravi Hatchud & The Indo Jazz Following

    Released on a compilation by outcast, I believe maybe it's just a cover up,
    A phoney track witch might have been recorded not so long ago.

    Linear notes and audio snippet here:

    Those drums sound too modern for a piece they claim is from the mid-70s to me. Compilation sounds good, though - might have to get it!

    I found this a few month's back on vinyl. Was'nt my cuppa tea so i took a look in the book . Sold it on the bay for £170.00 . The nice part was that the winning bidder was Amancio d'Silva's widow who wrote a letter saying she was on a mission to find all her husbands original releases and to let her know if i came across any in the future.

    I think that could be one of those one off moments.

    Just to fill in a couple of those first names, the flautist is Chris Taylor, the drummer is Dougie Wright - never heard of the LP, but with names like that on it it can't be bad, can it?

    It had some good point's but it was just hard work to listen to in that 'oh please just get on with it' kind of way.
    As you can guess reviewing music is not my strong point.
    Alright, i thought it was pompous bollocks. There i've said it.

    I picked up the Cosmic Eye album and Garcia / Wales 'Hooteroll' (both mint) for £1 each about 18 years ago, but sold the 'Eye' album as I couldn't get on with it !! WHAT WAS I THINKING !!

    The story about D'Silva's wife is beautiful !

    That Saga 'Ragas..' album is a cracker ! any ideas of the line up ? - On an Indo/jazz tip there's also 'Calcutta Blues' by Dave Brubeck from the 1958 'Impressions Of Eurasia' album - the earliest indo/jazz fusion ?
    "Cover condition:Is perfect except on back cover theres an area of dirty smudge dont know what it is and covers a bit wrinkled which im sure could be flattened out"
