Music for Yoga Meditation and Other Joys

Music for Yoga Meditation and Other Joys is a 1968 album by Tony Scott.

Reception



The album was reviewed by Stewart Mason for Allmusic who described it as "...not just a lifestyle curio, but a musically interesting lifestyle curio. Strip away the Age of Aquarius trappings (although the liner notes are good for an ironic giggle) and Music for Yoga Meditation and Other Joys is not dissimilar to what Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders would get up to over the next decade: long, flowing melodies and one-chord drones colored by elements of Indian classical music and other world music influences". Mason praised the "...surprising variety of moods and tonalities given the self-limiting instrument lineup" concluding that "though this is too twee and hippie-ish to be called jazz, ambient and space rock fans will be fascinated by it".
