Bim Sherman In India
Towards the end of his life, Bim Sherman spent some truly inspired time in India, reworking and recreating some of his old songs. With the support of a full film studio orchestra (Studio Beats Orchestra - Mumbai), and producers Adrian Sherwood/Talvin Singh/Skip McDonald, he created this masterpiece album, “Miracle.” From the subtle use of sarangi that fits the minorness of his songs, to the harmonized and layered instrumentation of shehnai on Can I Be Free From Crying, to what feels like his tongue-in-cheek opening vocal on My Woman (one that feels like a throwback to classic filmi recordings), to his lyrical focus on presence, I love this album.
Above is probably my favorite track, Bewildered. Wherever I couldn’t find a track from “Miracle”, I linked it to the original version, if possible. The rest I’ll post as MP3s.
