Rudresh Mahanthappa at Montgomery County Community College

4 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2013-04-06 2013-04-06 35 Rudresh Mahanthappa at Montgomery County Community College Few musicians share the ability of saxophonist/composer Rudresh Mahanthappa to embody the expansive possibilities of his music with his culture. Time and again, Mahanthappa has eloquently displayed the capacity to absorb numerous styles and genres of music, combine them with the language of modern jazz, and emerge with a new form still recognizably jazz. What has materialized is a sound that hybridizes progressive jazz and South Indian classical music in a fluid and forward-looking form that reflects Mahanthappa’s own experience growing up as a second-generation Indian-American. His latest quartet, Gamak, featuring guitarist David “Fuze” Fiuczynski, bassist Francois Moutin, and drummer Dan Weiss, will issue its first release in January 2013. Mahanthappa continues to partner with Pakistani-American guitarist Rez Abbasi and innovative percussionist Dan Weiss in the Indo-Pak Coalition. Despite his vast variety of influences, Mahanthappa’s one constant is the voice that the New York Times has hailed as possessing “a roving intellect and a bladelike articulation.” Montgomery County Community College, 340 Dekalb Pike false DD/MM/YYYY
