Spiritual Beauty: Imaginal Orient

Accuse bassist and producer Bill Laswell of artistic colonialism or cultural dilettantism and he'll probably just shrug his shoulders. His attitude has always been that he makes the music he likes, and that purists and defenders of tradition can feel free to go jump in a lake if they don't like it. This is an exceptionally lovely collection; too bad it provides so little background information about the artists. If you want to explore further, you're basically on your own.
