High-spirited Polish fusion from perennial ANF favourites Ossian, tracing the well-trodden East / West axis with a rampant instrumental free-for-all, fusing classic Indian textures to more traditional European jazz/ folk elements with alarming ease and enthusiasm.  From the off, it's clear you're buckling up for a proper trip.. kicking off with 2 minutes of purgative satanic howling (bold!) before settling into a pacifying tambura drone and smoke-like meandering flute, teeing up nicely for a steady-grounding, plump double bass.  From here the mood intensifies to a state of ecstatic revelry, fully throwing the kitchen sink at it, thumb-pianos, shakers, flutes, pots 'n pans.. THE WORKS.. even close to a couple of stray hare-krishna chants thrown for good measure (behave!), before retreating back to the all-knowing purple glow of the tambura drone to bring down the heart-rate to a more equitable pace. But as with all their stuff, they totally pull it off keeping the musicianship tight despite approaching Dionysian-levels of excess.  One of the best from one of the best!  (VG+ / VG+).
