I've yet to properly sink my teeth into the music of Usha Khanna, but each time I hear something of hers, I want to find out more. The last one I posted was excellent, as is 'Hawas'. There's a great, loungy vibe contained within most of the score; psych-tinged, jazz-tinged, pop-tinged - or any combination of the above. I'm particularly fond of 'Aao Yaro Gao' (a companion piece, perhaps, to Burman's 'Dum Maro Dum'), 'Yeh Hawas Kya Hai' (loads of cool jazzy details) and 'Apne Dil Men Jagah Dijiye' (with an awesome John Barry/Persuaders sound-a-like intro). To be fair though, there's a hardly a dull moment at all on this album, so well worth grabbing.
