The impatient ear might toss this in the World Music bin, but that's a lazy move. Sure, Scow & Brough employ acoustic instruments to fill out a series of chord changes with strummed passages and arpeggios. Closer listening, though, reveals interactions between solo and comping roles, giving the music more relationship with Shakti than your generically labeled "World" fare. This is reminiscent of classic fusion without the bravado (and volume!) but still reveling in texture and breathtaking solo flights. Great stuff.
