From New Age Retailer, July/August 2000
by Steve Ryals

A smoking-hot percussionist and master tabla player, Ray Spiegel has put together a superb group of jazz and Indian musicians for the world-fusion Sum and Kali. Spiegel, who has worked with such luminaries as the Grateful Dead, builds captivating rhythms into divine music with bass, violin, tanpura, drums, vibes, sax, and percussion. Steve Gorn plays bansuri with his usual flair. The delightful result is at once earthy and sublime, weaving seemingly disparate musical elements into a unique masterpiece. Favorite tracks include the bluesy "Colaba Blues", with Ira Coleman's liquid bass line and Stephen James on a soulful violin. "Ashes on the Beach at Puri" uses a reggae beat and tablas as the backdrop for sarod and electric guitar trading lead. "Kali Ma", which Spiegel wrote with Jai Uttal and Bhagavan Das, is a nearly 16-minute romp thorough the far reaches of jazz and world fusion, featuring Das on vocals as well.
