Tassos Spiliotopoulos – “Archipelagos” mp3
Any fan of Mahavishnu and John McLaughlin will appreciate this album. The lovely steel string work on the title track evokes something like calm seas flowing around a remote atoll, where life is unhurried. Instrumental, meditative bliss, but not the new age-y meandering kind. This performance, while chill, develops with intent and purpose. Just what I needed with my coffee on this fine urban Saturday AM.
