On this unusual recording, a departure from the call-and-response (kirtan) style, the deep longing to connect with his guru that comes through makes one feel as if you are listening in on Krishna Das's personal puja offerings.
Like Breath of the Heart, Door of Faith was produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, this time in his home studio. Known not only for his seminal rap and rock recordings, but also for his definitive work with Neil Diamond and the late Johnny Cash, Rubin is deservedly famous for his ability to capture the essence of an artist's expression: there is nothing extraneous on these tracks. Mostly, it's Krishna Das' weathered, sonorous voice and his harmonium, joined here and there by instrumental tracings-western strings, horns, and keyboards, and Benjy Wertheimer's eastern esraj. Other veterans of KD's previous recordings include Lili Haydn, John McDowell and Benmont Tench. A duet with daughter, Janaki on "Mere Gurudev" is a most tender invocation.
