Review

Review Text Al Gromer Khan (aka Aloysius Gromer) has built many soundscapes from his cross-cultural virtuosity. For Sufi, he relies heavily on Indian acoustic instruments and contemporary electronics. The CD is based on the intense poetry of the Sufi and the purity of their spirituality. Khan was deeply influenced by the teachings of Ustad Vilayat Khan and his demonstration of how a small fragment of music begets new realities. He embraces Sufism that works from direct experiences and allows it to affect his music -- deeply. This gentle soundscape is very subtle. The atmospheres are vacuous and large; Al Gromer Khan's sound design is flawless. The music builds and collapses upon itself continuously. Deep listeners will be fascinated by the depth of the journey. The unique soundscape will appeal to fans of David Parsons, Jalan Jalan, and Angelo Riccardi. It was a finalist in the New Age Voice 2001 music awards -- deservedly so. ~ Jim Brenholts
