Sitar Hero

A random, shuffle-function style Friday post to celebrate the end of a long, somewhat stressful week. Dave Pike is a jazz vibraphone and marimba player who's been doing his stuff since the 1950s. He's probably best known for this super-funky, sitar-led, slightly kitsch, 60s groover. Which was covered by Paul Weller and chums in the mid 90s as Indian Vibes and remixed by various folk (Richard Fearless, Andrew Innes etc). I posted the original and a remix a year or two back. Here's the original.

Got this on a Talkin Loud sampler a long time ago and was really surprised as the record was titled Brazilica! and Mather did not fit in with my idea of Brazilian music.

Great piece of music
