The intriguing Bird Dancer set combines Indian rhythms and instruments with jazz improvising. The music ranges from mood pieces and features for the sitar to the surprise blues "Boss Me Around" and a few fiery moments. The jazz content is often buried by the Indian rhythms and vocals (though Linda Shanovitch is actually from London) so this is an acquired taste for jazz listeners, but those who are into Indian music might find this mixture of strong interest.
