Sarod for Harmony

Remember this "duet"?
Finally managed to get my hands on one of the most amazing Hindustani Classical albums (imho) the other day - Amjad Ali Khan's "Sarod for Harmony". I had picked up the tape a few years ago when I was in Chennai, and had been looking out for the CD for a while.
It was a live concert held at Carnegie Hall, with AAK's sons completing the tigalbandi (three artistes). Both ragas he played (Behag and Kirwani) are two of the most amazing ragas. The Kirwani piece is simbly outta this world! Have 2 other CDs of him playing the same raga, but at different concerts - not a patch on the stuff he played at the Carnegie Hall.

So that's that for now...
