We gave it an A

It may have been the quiet Beatle who helped usher sitarist Ravi Shankar into the world at large, but the timeless strength of his music has given him staying power. Honoring his 75th birthday, the ravishing four-CD package In Celebration, coproduced by George Harrison, is a compelling historical sampler. In music ranging from classical Hindu profundity to East-West experiments to doses of cross-cultural kitsch, Shankar emerges sublime and game for new ideas.
