ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The original music created on "Outside, Looking In" is a perfect blend of acrobatic saxophone lines over brooding Indian rhythms that weave themselves through beautifully complex harmonies. Each track begins subtlety and climbs slowly to intense climax before settling back down, allowing the listener to take the full journey with the performers.
Tony Bray's warm soprano saxophone sound and organic synth textures work well over Girish Gambhira's ferociously grooving tabla drumming and Michael Barrett's intense bass lines. Rounding out the sound from this Los Angeles based group is Brad Rabuchin's very original and tasteful guitar playing style.

About the band...


Tony Bray- Soprano saxophone and keyboards.

Originally from Tennessee, Tony has spent most of his career wandering the world and playing cover music in clubs, coffee houses, casinos and cruise ships. In 2000 he moved to Los Angeles to focus on writing and playing music that reflects the influence of a lifetime of traveling and studying. For the past several years he has recorded and performed with the Latin jazz group ''Atria." He also works regularly with his childhood friend Girish Gambhira performing contemporary Kirtan music at Yoga studios and Ashrams.

Brad Rabuchin-Guitar

Since arriving in Los Angeles in 1986 Brad has had quite a successful career as a freelance guitar player working with Buddy Miles, Al Kooper, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Wonder, Ta Ta Vega, Richard Elliot, Tom Jones and for many years backed up the legendary Ray Charles. He is currently teaching in the LA area as well as promoting his first album "When Smart Dogs Go Bad". Available at www.bradrabuchin.com


Girish Ghambira -Tablas and Percussion

Girish began his musical career as a jazz drummer, following his deep spiritual longing until it called him to retreat from the world. For five years he lived as a monk in a Hindu monastery. During that time he studied the art of playing the tablas intensively, and immersed himself in the traditions of yoga. Now one of the most sought after session players in the world and sacred music scenes, he has collaborated on recordings with artists Krishna Das, Rasa, Dave Stringer, Wah!, Donna De Lory, Sada Sat Kaur, Snatam, Thomas Barquee, and the producer Michael Brook. With the release in early 2004 of his new chant CD, Reveal, Girish's own finely nuanced compositions and vocal stylings have now moved to the forefront.

Michael Barrett-Fretless Bass

Michael's musical journey began in Spokane. WA and has taken him all over the US and Japan, although most of his career has kept him in California. He spent his early years building chops playing and recording with Bay Area bands. While hanging out in the Bay Area he also earned an Associates degree in Music and an N.A.R.A.S degree in Audio Engineering from the College for Recording Arts in San Francisco. More recently, after relocating to Los Angeles, he has performed with and recorded two CDs with Latin Jazz group "Atria." The self titled CD Atria as well as Malditos Gringos are both available at www.cdbaby.com/atria

Music for the soul
Listening to Tony's music transports you to another place. This is what you listen to when you need to forget the hustle & bustle of the world. I highly recommend this cd.

Phil Gates

Unlimited Textures
I found this CD to have layer upon layer of amazing colors, textures, and vibe, while not sounding busy or crowded at all. Attempting the path less taken can be a daunting task, yet Tony Bray does this with ease, and allows us all to take a journey with his music. Relax. Listen. Enjoy...

Gary Lenaire


This music transcends the immediate senses. Tranquil and rhythmic, the separate musical elements become one in the melodies. I highly recommend this expression of art to anyone who enjoys serenity.

Michael Milano

a thought provoking journey without words . . .
'Outside, Looking In' isn't any one style of music, but rather many styles including their own creatively weaved together by this collection of artistic and talented minds. This album progresses through different emotions and delivers a sense of journey and thought. Although I can't compare this to any one ablum, you will find qualities such as the mystery of Miles Davis' 'Bitches Brew,' the psychodelic sounds found in an instrumental tangent from The Doors, and other colorful highlights you would expect from a band like Phish. I'm not saying this album is like any one of those, just that it contains those qualities. 'Outside, Looking In,' in its entirety sounds like no other. The best way to understand is to experience a listen for yourself.

I like "In The Master's Eyes"!
It's wonderful! The music is textured and has a very ethereal feel! We listen to it on the patio at dusk with a glass of wine- great way to unwind after a long day!

Very enjoyable album of contemporary and traditional instruments.
The album is an amazing blend of east-meets-west sounds that are very easy on the ears, and is very relaxing to listen to. Technically, it's well balanced, and has a very-wide soundscape. There is some very subtle instrumentation that can be heard if you listen carefully. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it -- several times over.

Joe Sparacio

Amazing blend of organic and synthetic textures
The first time I listened to 'Outside Looking In' I was immediately struck by the amazing blend of organic and synthetic textures. Soprano sax, fretless bass and tablas juxtaposed with droning synth pads and heavily-chorused electric guitar. This interesting timbral fusion not only works, it catapults the listener to a place where anything is sonically possible.
