This is one of Vilayat Khan's most rhetorical performances, and a tough nut to crack. It has been very tempting for me to remove it from the list, principally on account of its sometimes-rambling character, but ultimately I find that it hangs together and is stimulating. It is not at all a dull performance, and is thought-provoking. I cannot ask for more than that.
