Only slightly less essential than A Meeting by the River, his Grammy-winning 1993 collaboration with Ry Cooder, this album pairs legendary Indian guitarist Vishwa Mohan Bhatt with new grass pioneers Jerry Douglas and Edgar Meyer. It's an oddly endearing Bengali-gone-bluegrass experiment in fusion few might expect to work, but once those lightning-fast fingers start blazing away on chord progressions that seem to originate in some strange universe halfway between Nashville and nirvana, all preconceptions are blown right out the window. Dizzying solos make this an imaginative masterpiece. ~ Bret Love
