Editor's info:
Pandit (master) Debashish Bhattacharya is one of the world's most remarkable slide guitarists and this album represents the culmination of a lifetime of intensive study, performance and innovation. All the guitars heard on 3: Calcutta Slide-Guitar are unique instruments designed by Debashish himself, a Trinity of Guitars - Chaturangui, Gandharvi and Anandi - representing three generations of instruments, while also continuing a thousand-year tradition of music. 3: Calcutta Slide-Guitar dazzles the listener with hypnotic patterns and stunning music shaped from Debashish's original three-finger picking technique.

Born into a musical family on 12 January 1963, in Kolkata (Calcutta), India, Debashish Bhattacharya learnt to sing before he could talk. At the age of 3, he started playing the Hawaiian lap steel guitar, giving his first major concert on All India Radio at 4. The first slide guitarist to receive the President of India Award in 1984 he was made a Pandit (master) at 40. Since then he has been established as one of the world's most outstanding slide guitarists by tours of inspirational live concerts and bestselling albums, including the breathtaking collaboration with slide guitarist Bob Brozman, Mahima ('truly groundbreaking' MOJO 'beautiful and inspired' Daily Telegraph).

A designer, as well as a virtuoso, Debashish has designed nineteen slide guitars since he began experimenting in his twenties, and the three guitars heard on this album are all his individual designs. 'Aanandam' ('Joy') opens the album with Debashish performing on 'Anandi', a slide ukulele that he designed which produces a surprisingly direct, clear tone. Raga Tilak Kamod is an evening raga played on the fourteen-stringed Ghandarvi, whose name derives from Gandharva loka, the celestial realm of music. Composed of two parts, the second - 'Nata Raaj' ('Dance Of Shiva') - unites the traditions of Hindustani (North) and Karnatic (South) Indian tradition using a Khani rhythm pattern (swinging tintal).

Chaturangui - a twenty-two-string guitar with four additional tones - completes the Guitar Trinity and is featured in Raga Basant Mukhari. In the first section, 'Usha', Sutapa Bhattacharya plays the background drone of the tambura whilst Debashish delicately introduces each note of the raga. In the second part, 'Prabha', Debashish performs with tabla accompaniment from Subhasis Bhattacharjee. The final section, 'Maha Shakti' ('Beyond The Sun') is performed at a fast tempo in tintal, a sixteen-beat cycle, displaying fantastic improvisation between the guitar and tablas.

3: Calcutta Slide-Guitar demonstrates the talents of one of the world's most outstanding slide guitarists. On this album, Debashish Bhattacharya, an exceptional musician and design innovator, brings together a thousand-year tradition of Indian music and spirituality with his Trinity of Guitars.

It is a milestone in musically nutritious improvised music in 2005
JazzWise, UK. MAY 2005. by Ken Hunt


'using a three-finger picking technique that allows Bhattacharya to play extra ordinarily complex and nuanced microtonal slide runs with breathtaking speed, accuracy and beauty'.
Guitar Player, USA July 05. By Barry Cleveland


Each instrument possesses a sound of its own, from the joyous innocence of the smallest to the complexity of the largest, on which he uses a unique three-finger picking technique that gives him lightning speed creates hypnotic flurries o notes that it would take a battery of special effects to produce from a western Guitar.
The results are as beautiful as they are extraordinary.
The Times UK 16th April 2005. by Nigel Williamson


'rewarding listening ... stunningly sinuous artistry'
The Daily Telegraph UK, 23rd April 2005, By- MH.


'Calcutta Slide-Guitar 3 though is a recording with siren calls coming from its currents and depths. An album to which the word 'noble' can be unapologetically applied, music from a man whose hands are there to liberate spontaneous creativity. An album to return to'
