Featuring four renowned players, Bombay Jazz melds a dynamic blend of jazz with Indian classical music. The group explores the melodic richness of raga and the rhythmic interplay that is common to both Indian and jazz improvisation. 71-year old guitarist Larry Coryell, a towering presence in jazz history, serves as bandleader. After emerging with Chico Hamilton, Herbie Mann and Gary Burton, Coryell established himself as a major jazz-rock pioneer in 1969 with Spaces, featuring John McLaughlin, Chick Corea and Billy Cobham. Since then he’s worked with giants including Sonny Rollins, Paco de Lucia, Charles Mingus and Kenny Barron, as well as venturing deeply into classical music on acoustic guitar. George Brooks is a prolific saxophonist and composer, acclaimed for successfully bridging the worlds of jazz and Indian classical music. His deep understanding of raga has led to collaborations with artists such as Zakir Hussain, Hariprasad Chaurasia, Vikku Vinayakram, L. Subramaniam and others. Flute maestro Ronu Majumdar and tabla virtuoso Aditya Kalyanpur are two of India’s most highly respected musicians. Please join us for one of the major world-jazz events of the year!
