Ravi Shankar has had a long and productive career, and his reputation in Indian classical music goes without saying. The Teacher is a nice compilation, taken from EMI India sources. It presents various ragas in different forms. There are a couple full ragas, complete with alap; there is a dhun, which is a light classical treatment; and there even is a piece done with the time constraints of a 78 in mind, forcing Shankar to distill the essence of the raga into quite a short performance by Indian classical standards. The variation in the pieces makes The Teacher a good candidate for anyone wanting an introduction to Ravi Shankar or Indian classical music in general. ~ Sean Westergaard
