Exciting jazz cross-pollinated with one of India’s most treasured vocalists.

“[Mahesh is] an unlikely rock star.” —The Hindu
“Bristling with East meets West polytonality and rhythmic intrigue, tinged with a Trane-like spirituality . . . [Brooks] succeeds to a startling and almost rapturous degree.” —San Francisco Bay Guardian

Continuing their sold-out collaboration of last year’s Stanford Jazz Festival, jazz virtuoso George Brooks and Indian classical music star Mahesh Kale reunite for a performance that transcends cultural and musical barriers. Featuring renowned Indian percussionist Bickram Ghosh, this performance of otherworldly sounds creates an intriguing blend of jazz energy and Indian ragas and rhythms.

Personnel:
George Brooks, saxophone
Mahesh Kale, vocals
Bickram Ghosh, percussion
