The Big Bang [Ellipsis]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Nothing comes close to the coverage in this new percussion collection, from Chinese drumming to Olatunji and Patato to Panamanian tamborito ours! to bodhran virtuoso Tommy Hayes, plus the usual new age luminaries such as Glenn Velez.

The packaging is fancy, with a very posh booklet printed on politically correct paper, with lots of illustrations and the usual enthusiastic but not awfully informative notes. Still, all in all, it's smashing. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
