This Thursday, October 12th, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome drummer Dan Weiss back to our stage for a performance showcasing his study of Indian Classical music, presented with Brooklyn Raga Massive. Weiss is both an in-demand collaborator and acclaimed bandleader, bringing his extraordinarily wide musical experiences to bare in any situation.
In addition to his work as a drummer and composer, Weiss has been a longtime student of Indian Classical music, working with guru Pandit Samir Chatterjee for twenty years. Weiss has recorded a solo tabla record, 3D CD, as well as two records with guitarist Miles Okazaki that translate rhythms from the tabla to the drum set. Check out Weiss and Okazaki play a piece based on the ten-beat rhythmic cycle, jhaptal, at The Jazz Gallery.
For his performance at the Gallery on Thursday, Weiss will be joined by Okazaki, as well as the acclaimed Indian musicians Anupam Shobhakar on Sarod and Selva Ganesh percussion.
