- Mumbai Jazz
- Jazz/ World
Mumbai Jazz is a spectacular jazz/raga mix-up matching fusion legends Larry Coryell (guitar) and Ned McGowan (flute) with India's foremost bansuri player, Ronu Majumdar. Percussionist Rajesh Rajbhatt completes the line-up on the rarely heard pakhawaj, a two-headed drum offering a deeper, rootsier alternative to the tabla.
All four musicians are accomplished performers and composers in their own right: Coryell just about invented jazz-rock and Majumdar has collaborated with Ry Cooder and George Harrison.
This collaboration has resulted in powerful new works exploring the melodic richness of raga and dynamic rhythmic interplay common to both Indian classical music and jazz!"
