A one-of-a-kind recording featuring three music giants. From the 70’s into the mid-80’s, pianist/composer Stu Goldberg was a major force on the international jazz scene, performing alongside such legendary fusionists as the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Al DiMeola, and Alphonse Mouzon. Known as the “Godfather of Fusion”, Guitarist Larry Coryell co-founded the ground-breaking jazz-rock group Free Spirits, and worked with the likes of Chico Hamilton and Gary Burton before going on to international fame with his own groups. The London Times called Dr. L. Subramaniam “one of the world’s leading violinists”. An adherent of the South Indian Carnatic music tradition, he is also a master of the classical and jazz traditions, having played with musicians ranging from Yahudi Menuhin to Herbie Hancock. Played in trio, and based on a Carnatic raga, Vrindãvan describes a day in the life of this Indian village. Goldberg’s composition for solo piano, Westward Reach, was inspired by the northwestern point of the bay by Santa Monica, California, Stu’s hometown, while I’ll Remember April features Stu and Larry in duo.  A photo of the Himalayan mountain Ama Dablam was Stu’s inspiration for this solo piano outing, and Solar Wind again features Stu and Larry in duo. Larry marveled, “The piece is unbelievable. Stu managed to get an hour of music into four minutes’ time.” L. Subramaniam dedicated Satya Priya (True Love) to the Indian spiritual master Satya Sai Baba; it features Subramaniam and Goldberg in duo, overdubbed on a variety of instruments. For German jazz guru Joachim E. Berendt, their music “…transcends boundaries – between jazz and chamber music, between Europe, America and India, between composition and improvisation…”
