Calcutta-born singer Amit Chaudhuri's follow-up to This Is Not Fusion ( Babel , 2010) is another captivating and deeply idiosyncratic fusion/not fusion of Hindustani classical music, jazz, rock and blues. It's a style Chaudhuri, with several albums of "pure" Hindustani music already behind him, began developing in 2004 with the Amit Chaudhuri Band, which features his singing alongside electric guitars and keyboards, acoustic trumpet and tabla. If you haven't heard the band before, you're in for a treat—dreamy raga-based discusions which incorporate the acid rock songbook, trumpeter Miles Davis ' modal legacy, Delta blues and retro Tin Pan Alley.
