Guitarist Warren Cuccurullo says about "The Blue": "This music was improvised live to a 2-track digital at my home studio in London. The spontaneous creations captured on this CD are what I consider to be music in its purest form - composition from literally, out of the blue." He described it to me in 1998 as very "stream-of-consciousness" playing between himself and Shankar. The press release describes it as "atmospheric music with guitar, violins and vocals." Violinist Shankar started with John McLaughlin in a band called Shakti. He was a popular Indian classical musician who played traditional Indian classical music, and with McLaughlin, he was introduced into the fusion world and established his name playing violin. Note: even though technically this experimental CD is instrumental (no lyrics/singing), each track features Shankar on 'voice as instrument' providing the 'melodic line' for each track.
