ARMSTRONG & NAHRMANN HAVE BEEN TOP WORLD-FUSION MUSICIANS FOR 40 YEARSWorld-fusion music lovers must seek out the album, BEYOND BORDERS, by Randy Armstrong & Volker Nahrmann.This CD is a combination instrumental and vocal album (some female wordless vocals and a little male singing -- one tune in a foreign language) and lots of upbeat world-flavored material. These two guys are incredible musicians -- Armstrong plays guitar, sitar and practically any stringed instrument ever created, plus lots of world percussion; and Nahrmann also plays acoustic bass in a top New England symphony orchestra and could sit in comfortably with any jazz band around (plus he plays electric bass and keyboards). They are joined by numerous great musicians from all over the world including some singers (mostly female, plus one male vocalist from Africa, and Armstrong sings on a track).One tune pays tribute to the Latin-jazz that jazz great Dizzy Gillespie brought to the masses back in the 1950s, and another piece tips the sitar-hat to when George Harrison and Ravi Shankar did the same with that instrument from India in the Sixties and Seventies (Armstrong, normally a guitarist, plays a strong sitar). Other music gives nods to American Indian music, Cuba, the sounds associated with French sidewalk cafes, and the Paul Winter Consort.This is a potpourri of styles that should not be missed.

Randy Armstrong & Volker Nahrmann have released a jazz world fusion album that reminded me of why I fell in love with jazz back in the early eighties listening to Al DiMeola, Jean Luc Ponty and Stanley Clark. Those artists showed me the way and invited me to explore a complex genre of music that offers a journey that never ends. With Beyond Borders, one of many releases that this duo has brought to the masses over the years, they have reestablished their place in the world of music. Several songs on Beyond Borders are tributes to jazz legend Dizzy Gillespie, sitarist Pandit Ravi Shankar, and Beatle George Harrison.I do not use the term world lightly; if you look at the fascinating and expressive cover it says it all for these artists. To me, the cover conveys that we are one people on this vast globe and music can unite us. So, let’s try to make our own music as a sentient race and make this a better place to live. This of course leaves the door open to your own personal interpretation and that is the beauty of such a stunning work of art as portrayed on the cover of this CD and all the music that it contains. As quoted from the artist page “Beyond Borders is considered their “Magnum Opus” featuring a collection of songs composed over a 40-year span of creative output, dedicated to the belief that music has the power to uplift the human spirit and be a catalyst for change in the world.” I think that puts it all into a proper perspective.The term jazz world fusion comes into perfect focus with the opening track “Ciao Bella” (which was featured on Rate The Tracks). In Italian it translates to "Hi/Bye Beautiful," and what a hello it is. The first time I heard the sitar in popular music was back in the 60s when George Harrison introduced it into The Beatles music. I cannot say it is an instrument that fascinates me like some others however in this particular case I was amazed how beautiful and appropriate it sounded in “Shanti Om,” the dedication to Harrison and Shankar. It is one of the best tracks on the recording. The myriad of instruments employed throughout this project make it one of the more eclectic listens of the year.There is something to take into account regarding the flow and energy in life, it is crucial to the balance of the body, mind and spirit. With that in mind I realized after a few listens to this captivating album that this brought this concept to the forefront of my consciousness.“White Cloud Black Thunder” is another prolific change during the course of this album. It is a reminder of from whence we came and encourages us to honor our Native American brothers and sisters that gave us so much while receiving so little during the development of our great nation. It serves as a rain dance of life with tribal beats and chants accompanied by music that will mesmerize you.
