***A Non-Western concept split album. The Coleman classic „Lonely Woman“ , deeply Middle- and South-Eastern adaptded and re-arranged by two different artists. Arranged by Joel Robinson, Arizona’s Sunn Trio are transmitting the track into a different genre with dilruba (a north-Indian instrument similar to the Sarangi), Tabla, Tanpura, Guitar, Cello, Knife, Bells, Drums & Percussion to the hazy banks of Ganges. The soundtrack for a Punjabi opium-coma. Egyptian composer Sam Shalabi (Dwarfs Of East Agouza, Land Of Kush, Karkhana, Shalabi Effect) re-arranged the track for solo oud – delightful, complex, warm and elegant with the background of an experienced improviser. The version on the album is a different, peppier version of the same song, which was available digitally only through Constellation Records Corona Borealis project. Limited edition one time pressing of 300 copies, 100 of it in white vinyl.
