    Trilok Gurtu may be the most inventive percussionist I've ever seen/heard. In terms of out-and-out drumming, his extended solo on Pasha's Love on this live album from the early 90s may be one of the most unbelievable things I've ever heard. If you want to get a taste of what he can really do (without a bass drum, no less!) when let loose, get this CD. And make sure you're sitting down when you listen to it - it'll knock you down.

    Well I’m feeling just a tad inadequate at the moment. Wow.

    I've seen Trilok a few times, once as a guest with Medeski, Martin & Wood & I chatted briefly with him once. I've seen him divide a "white bread" audience in half & have one half clap in 7 & one half clap in 9. Crazy stuff. Here's "Mother Tongue" a fascinating solo from a John Mclaughlin Trio live outing that shows what a powerful & funny individual Trilok Gurtu is. It's on the same album as the track Skinz posted & I can't believe it's been 28 years already since that was released.
