Al Gromer Khan (born Aloysius Gromer) has become quite prolific in the new millennium. Lexus: Future Miniatures is one of his discs and it is, perhaps, the most traditional or accessible of the lot. Slow raga rhythms carry deep atmospheres along a fine line that borders on electro-tribal ambience. Gromer has long been recognized as one of the premiere practitioners of that style. This is certainly among his best efforts in that vein. It is very reminiscent of some of the classic desert ambient CDs of the masters, and Gromer's subtle sitar adds a real sense of depth. This CD will appeal to fans of Steve Roach, Biff Johnson, Ma Ja Le, TUU, and Vidna Obmana.
