This weekend, The Jazz Gallery is thrilled to team up with Brooklyn Raga Massive to present two nights of BRM’s Coltrane Raga Tribute. The project first performed at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn in September 2015, highlighting the influence of Indian classical music on Coltrane’s work. Under the direction of percussionist Sameer Gupta, the group features a cast of musicians performing on both Indian and jazz instruments. To get a sense of the project’s rich sonic landscape, check out their version of Coltrane’s “Alabama” from their debut performance.
For this special performance at The Jazz Gallery, the ensemble features Marcus Strickland on woodwinds, Abhik Mukherjee on sitar, Jay Gandhi on bansuri, Sharik Hasan on piano & keyboards, Rashaan Carter on bass, and music director Sameer Gupta on drum set & tabla.
