Inside (Paul Horn album)

Inside is a live album by American flautist and composer Paul Horn, released in 1969 by Epic Records. It was recorded inside the Taj Mahal in Agra, India on April 25, 1968, during Horn's visit to produce a documentary about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Transcendental Meditation. It features Horn playing solo flute with an unidentified guard of the tombs who provides Hindu chants. The album marks a major stylistic departure for Horn who achieved initial notoriety as a jazz musician, both solo and with his group, the Paul Horn Quintet.
