Taj-Mahal Travelers-July 15 , 1972['Japan Free Improvisation]

Highly Recommended!
first album by this avantgarde free improvisation group
enjoy your trip!

this band is great
people who like this should get Group Ongaku from here
has one of the founding members of this band in it
that was recorded around 60-61


July 1972 is the Taj mahal Travellers their legendary debut album, here miscredited as 'Travelers' - this album is the result of a live in studio recording, the group's instrumentation consists of electronically-treated acoustic instruments, oscillators and sheet metal (suntool), and heavily relies on time-delay effects to create psychedelic, expansive dronest. Taj Mahal Travellers played lengthy improvised jams in a far-eastern approach to music as a living organism, an intense electronic processing of instruments and voices; they improvised all over the world (India, Iran, UK, Sweden), on deserted shores, small galeries, coffee bars, lonely hills (almost wherever power supply was available) and the result was this incredible album of cosmic bliss. The sound is floating like coming from distant loudspeakers, coloured back and forth from hand made electronic devices and delayed throug echo machines. Bass, harmonica, trumpet, synthesizer, oriental percussions are added. There are no interractions between the musicians, each one is having his own inner discussion with the instrument, however the result of merging them all together is a pulsating feedback

Is there a special code to enter once file is downloaded and opening on personal computer? I try to open and computer asks for a password for encrypted file?! BTW, I have Kan Mikami's 'Kan' album on Cd if you are still looking for it.

Downloaded the August 1974 double earlier and am so impressed (listening to it now) I will definitely investigate further.
Great blog - thanks for taking the time and trouble.

Thanks for the recommendation. I really like those bands that they aren't commercial. I think that it is important to be original and try thing that other band haven't done.
