Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Gamak
Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Gamak |
“Mahanthappa's biting attack pairs a Coltrane influence with an incisive, exacting articulation, which absolutely soars.”—JazzTimes
Welcome back jazz sax sensation Rudresh Mahanthappa, whose Coltrane-inspired sound is well matched to the ever-questing thrust of Gamak, his new quartet. Gamak features the stellar, intricate guitar work of Dave “Fuze” Fiuczynski (who also teams up with Mahanthappa in Jack DeJohnette’s current group), as well as Mahanthappa’s longtime rhythm section of Francois Moutin on bass and Dan Weiss on drums. This stunning ensemble furthers Mahanthappa’s ongoing interest in drawing on non-Western sources of musical inspiration to fuel his new jazz concepts. Gamak will issue a new recording early in 2013, and you’ll be able to hear the musicians tear into this fresh material up close in the intimate cabaret-style setting of our Performance Space.
