The first track on the album, "Namaste", was remixed by Kid Tricky. I'm not sure die hard fans of Kenny G will love this CD, but if you're a fan of Eastern music, you may enjoy the collabration. Thanks to Rahul Sharma, it has a different vibe than most music on the adult contemporary charts these days. It's much more upbeat and yet, at the same time, relaxing.
Here's the official track listing:
3. "Dance Of The Elephant"
4. "Lotus Lovers"
5. "Transcendental Consciousness"
6. "Valley Of Flowers"
8. "Om Shanti"
9. "Transcendental Consciousness" (Walter A. Remix)
10. "Namaste" (Soul Seekerz Club Mix)
My favorite off the CD was "Dance Of The Elephant". Honestly, I found myself wanting more Rahul Sharma and less Kenny G. I also felt like the remixes were trying to reach out to a different audience that probably isn't as receptive to Kenny G as his core audience. I know my musical taste tends to be a little more eccentric than others, so your opinion may vary from mine. If you're looking for a little something different to listen to while relaxing, or having a nice dinner at home, you might want to check out Namaste.
The Kenny G and Rahul Sharma Namaste will be available next Tuesday, June 26th, wherever CDs are sold. You'll also be able to download the tracks off sites like iTunes. The CD is available for pre-order on Amazon for $9.99 as of this posting.
