Release Info: Jonas Hellborg - Shawn Lane - Icon (1984)
Icon: A Transcontinental Gathering is an album by bass guitarist Jonas Hellborg, released on January 25, 2003 through Bardo Records. The album merges contemporary jazz-fusion and traditional Indian improvised music and features guitarist Shawn Lane in his last officially released studio recording before his death in September of that year, as well as the sons of ghatam player Vikku Vinayakram: Selvaganesh (kanjeera), Umashankar (ghatam) and Umamamesh (vocals), who also perform passages of konnakol, the vocal "scatting" often used as a memory device by Indian percussionists. The album's name stands for a common cross-cultural ideal image, beyond vanity and self-identity, also present in this kind of musical communication.
All songs written and composed by Jonas Hellborg and V. Selvaganesh.
