RAVI SHANKAR "CHAPPAQUA" (CBS, 1966)





Fond memories... - before I even knew about Ornette Coleman's "Chappaqua Suite" I bought this LP as a teenager. The cover was the reason I spend my little money.
When I got to know Coleman's version my copy of the Shankar LP was already gone...
Some weeks ago I found it second-hand for a few bucks and enjoyed it again after more then thirty years...

A jazz inflected soundtrack for the movie from Conrad Brooks - no information about the musicians on the cover except:

Was this the inspiration for Ornette's suite? I'm looking forward to hearing it for the first time, then going back to the Ornette album. Thanks, Onx!

To my knowledge Conrad Brooks thought that Coleman's music (which was first!) would be a bit too strong - the music would have detracted the watchers from the pictures...
Then he asked Ravi Shankar...
