Saxophonist & composer Sundar Viswanathan brings together his jazz background & his South Indian heritage in these gorgeous compositions that incorporate Indian classical elements with a palette of other world & jazz influences. The vocals by Felicity Williams are reminiscent of the Brazilian vocalist Flora Purim when she performed with Return to Forever! Guitarist Michael Occhipinti sometimes reminds one of Prasanna (“the Jimi Hendrix of India”). The bass, drums, keyboards, & tabla are super fine too. Don’t miss this!
