For over a decade, Rez Abbasi has been blazing a new trail along with cohorts, Rudresh Mahanthappa and Vijay Iyer, as a leading figure in Indian/Pakastani – American cutting edge jazz. This weekend will feature music from Abbasi’s 2011 album Suno Suno along with new compositions with an elite band of David Binney (alto saxophone), Matt Mitchell (piano), Johannes Wiedenmueller (bass), and Dan Weiss drums.
I had a chat with a good friend from Brooklyn the other day and she vehemently suggested that i not miss this. So i shall partake.
Here’s a snippit;
