A BEAUTIFUL DAY

 

Total Time: 50 mins. Available only on cassette.

(for a CD version of most tracks from this album see Between Bombay & Byron Bay )

 

The third album with Sangeet. We began recording in late '94 and completed it in June '95.

 

Click on the following tracks to hear the music

1. Good Morning - This is a very beautiful, simple track with Sangeet playing sitar in the early morning, to the birds in the forest, at my home "Kittani", Northern NSW, Australia.

2. A Beautiful Day - Sangeet had an idea of the feel of the music. I created a drone on the keyboards building up to a basic drum groove. We developed this until it was solid enough for Sangeet to lay down a track of sitar. I then added accoustic guitar and a few orchestral parts to complete this ambient-eastern-rock composition.

3. Between Bombay and Byron Bay - This one has a strange scale. Sangeet on sitar, and myself on steel string guitar improvised this one live in the studio. I then layed a track of fretless bass.

4. Ihos - begins with the done of the sitar and a haunting soprano sax played by Phillip. The tablas (played by Nanda Gopal) begin the rhythm and the sitar takes you on a jouney of belly dancers and snake charmers as the rhythm speeds up to a crashing finale.

5. Cheeky Boogie - is a tongue in cheek western boogie with the weirdest scale that always makes me smile and think " Is this for real?"
This was improvised live in the studio with Sangeet on sitar, Nanda Gopal on tablas and myself on steel string guitar. I then played fretless bass guitar.

Recorded, produced and mixed at Kittani Music Studio Sept '94 to June '95. Released on cassette July '95.

From 1977 to 1982 I travelled and lived in South America.
I was exposed to many music styles, jammed and toured with many Latino musicians .... and after 5 years could begin to feel those latin rhythms becoming part of my being......
So it was about time I released a Latin album.
I first began recording some of the tracks sometime in '93. The abum was first released in January 1995 and then re-released after remixing in July 1995.And now on CD  I've added another 3 tracks to the
original cassette album for your maximum enjoyment.

Manifesting Dreams
As the title suggests this is about manifeating my dreams (a home in a beautiful, natural place having my own recording studio, being succsessful with my music.......).The feel is a light, bossa nova with the melodies and harmonies played on flute (by Peter Haddock),skatting voice (by Damini), and guitar by yours truly, with both a nylon string guitar solo and a flute solo. I layed down the rhythm section with fretless bass, keyboards, drums and percussion.

 Flamenco Dancer
A fiery, flamenco feel with Pete playing the melody lines on flute with a brass backing. I played a fiery Spanish guitar solo.

 La Luna Llena ( means 'the full moon' in Spanish)
This music is composed by a Chilanian friend, Miguel Pinera. I've been playing this music since 1981. It has evolved and changed into what it sounds like today and always goes down well live with it's uptempo, lively Latin feel.
Pete assisted in part of the production and does some great flute parts. I sang the lead vocals with Damini on harmony, and all three of us (Damini, Pete and I ) sang the chorus lines.

 Dreams Of Passion
This is a very fast, fiery (Al Di Meola influence) piece.
It starts off with a dreamy introduction with keyboards, flute and electric guitars and fires into this high speed accoustic/electric guitar chase.

 Arcoiris (means rainbow in Spanish)
This is another Miguel Pinera composition with my arranging and interpretation. The feel is a layed-back bossa with guitar, keyboards, fretless bass, drums, and percussion. It features Damini and I on vocals with lots of space for accoustic guitar and flute improvizations.

Takila
Another flamenco style composition with the percussive melodies and harmonies on the flute and skatting vocals. The solos are on Spanish guitar and flute.

Diving
This is a song I wrote whilst in Bali enjoying underwater snorkling. It has a jazzy-Latin-fusion feel. Pete and Damini sang the verses and Damini and I sang the choruses. I playedthe electric guitars on the theme and that jazzy guitar solo is by Nandano.

 Badaba
A very dancable, happy, flamenco, party song I composed after learning some flamenco rhythms.
Damini, Pete, Jannelle and I all sang together, after I created the backing and Spanish guitar solo.

Produced,recorded,engineered & digitally mixed by Tarshito at
Kittani Music Solar Powered Studio,1993 to 1996. Remastered Nov 2000.

UNDER THE CRESCENT MOON

 

 

 

 
Tarshito,Pete & Lula began playing together as a trio in the Autumn of '96 in Byron Bay. Following a series of improvised performances,we gathered in the splendiferous surrounds of Kittani Studio.There on the last day of October '96 we captured the adventurous spirit of our live shows.This is a recording of a genuine live performance with no retakes or overdubs. It is in the spirit of spontanaeity that we offer this recording to you.
It's difficult to classify this music.It's improvised accoustic with hints of ambient/classical/folk/jazz/world/fusion with moods and textures that both fly and float,build and break like wind and water currents.

It was first released on 18th Dec '96 on cassette and 2001 on CD
