The Supreme Collection Volume 1

Genre: World; Producer (group): Caroline

Not even the late Jeff Buckley’s overwrought liner notes can sink this two-disc set from Pakistan’s premier purveyors of Qawwali (the devotional music of Sufi mysticism), Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Party. Nonetheless, The Supreme Collection Volume 1 is more primer than definitive statement: Khan’s lengthy improvisational and call-and-response passages, while brilliant, are less electrifying than on many of his live albums. Divine, yes. Supreme, perhaps not. B
