Pause, let go of the events of the day and enter your evening better prepared to enjoy the people and activities that give you pleasure. Enjoying your life is good for you and good for the world.
Taking a relaxing pause between day and evening gives the conscious brain the message that it can let go now and allow the unconscious to offer creative solutions. As you listen to the music, it’s good to be aware of your breathing. Exhale and let the events of the day drift away. Inhale and drop your awareness from your head down into your heart. Exhale and let go of any tension, stress or worry you might be holding. Inhale and drop deeper into your solar plexus where you can get a clearer sense of how you would like to spend the coming evening, a few hours that are yours. What would you most enjoy doing? What would be pleasurable? Then, refreshed and renewed, step into this evening you have imagined.

Zakir Hussain is a poet of the tabla, but as this album makes clear, his interests extend far beyond Indian classical music. He’s joined here by an international cast of players, each of whom lends a different influence to the proceedings. While the dynamic remains largely on the low end, preserving the music’s meditative quality, there are elements of jazz (Jan Garbarek’s liquid sax lines) and folk (John McLaughlin’s pastoral acoustic guitar). These more Western influences contrast nicely with Hussain’s tablas, which seem to tell a slowly unfolding story to the listener. Famed flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia navigates the middle ground between Garbarek’s jazzy explorations and the traditional Indian bent of Hussain. While MAKING MUSIC would fit comfortably alongside the languid, atmospheric jazz that makes up the bulk of ECM’s catalogue, Hussain’s music is a singular animal–an utterly unique hybrid.
