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.
