L SUBRAMANIAM picture
A gifted South Indian counterpart of Jean-Luc Ponty on the electric violin, and endlessly curious about all kinds of music, Subramaniam has been a pioneer in exploring intelligent fusions between European classical music, American jazz, rock, and South Indian music. His father, a master Indian violinist, and mother, who played the Indian vina, were his first musical influences, and after abandoning a career in medicine, he formed a violin trio with his two brothers while still in India. He toured America and Europe with Ravi Shankar and ex-Beatle George Harrison in 1974, made his first fusion album in Copenhagen (Garland), and wrote material for Stu Goldberg and Larry Coryell in 1978. He settled in the Los Angeles area in the late '70s in order to earn a doctorate in Western music at the California Institute of the Arts, where he also taught South Indian music.

If memory serves this was the album that introduced me to L. Subramaniam as I was already familiar with Stephane Grappelli. The pair work well together. Six are tracks with the both of them. There's a arranged and adapted Paganini Caprice 5 without Stephane and one piano solo by Grappelli. I did not know he played piano.

Unlike the other Subramaniam duet I have, with Larry Coryell, the two are accompanied by other musicians. And this one is an electric music affair with bass, drums, and keyboards. Not your standard swing or Indian music offered here but rather fusion with a French and Indian accent. Worth checking out particularly if you are a fan of Jean Luc Ponty's '70's fusion albums.
