"This is a great book. The author conveys a real sense of how to begin improvising with raags. He does that by explaining the subject matter with enormous clarity and insight. And he brings  a fantastic understanding of process to what he explains. There are a lot of books about improvisation out there. But this one's the real deal. And it's about improvising in a style that by and large isn't accessible unless you have access to a master practitioner and teacher. What else is there to say? I'd give it 11 stars if Lulu gave us that option!"
