Asha Puthli
She Loves To Hear The Music
LP | 1975 | US | Reissue (CBS)
14,99 €*
Release:1975 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
"From her early days raised as a youth in
Bombay, Asha Puthli initially trained in Indian
classical music and opera, but over time
gravitated towards contemporary western pop,
upon discovering talents like Nat King Cole, Ella
Fitzgerald, and Dusty Springfield. After making
a name for herself in her native country, she
found her way to New York, where she
happened upon John Hammond of
CBS Records. Hammond would introduce Puthli
to the avant-garde legend Ornette Coleman,
who utilized her unique vocal stylings on his
1971 record Science Fiction. Her work on the
album earned widespread praise, and though it
didn't lead to further work in the United States, it
did bring her a record contract in Europe.
After her self-titled debut in 1973, Puthli wasted
little time in recording her next album, heading
back into the studio, and re-emerging with
1975's She Loves To Hear The Music. Building
on the eccentric amalgamation of pop,
avant-garde, jazz, and proto-disco that her
debut contained, her sophomore release once
again featured production from constant
collaborator Del Newman, as well as a new
array of covers ranging from Cole Porter to Van
McCoy to Neil Sedaka."

"From her early days raised as a youth in Bombay, Asha
Puthli initially trained in Indian classical music and
opera, but over time gravitated towards contemporary

further work in the United States, it did bring her a
record contract in Europe.
In 1973, Puthli released her self-titled debut through
CBS, which would not see release in the US, but was
subject to widespread critical acclaim and fascination
throughout Europe. Asha Puthli was produced by Del
Newman, who had done arrangements and production
for Elton John's famed album ""Goodbye Yellow
Brick Road"", of which Puthli was a professed fan, and
featured a cover image heavily inspired by the glam
aesthetics of groups like T. Rex, David Bowie, and
Queen. These aesthetics would also blend into the
music itself, an 8-song collection featuring renditions of
songs by George Harrison, J.J. Cale, Bill Withers, and
others, plus one original by Puthli herself.
Asha Puthli is a remarkable work of its time, for its
daring amalgamation of pop sensibilities, jazz
sultriness, and experimental weirdness. A sensuous
work of jazz / disco fusion that pre-dated Donna
Summer's slick, and eccentric works."
