Newport Jazz Festival: Rudresh Mahanthappa And Samdhi Live
Airs Tuesday, May 7 at 9 p.m. Buoyed by a Guggenheim Fellowship, the alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa made an album in 2008 which integrated his love of South Asian music and funk and hip-hop and electronic music and kitchen sinks. He's finally getting to tour the music of the record Samdhi now, and with guitarist David Gilmore, Rudy Royston on drums and Rich Brown on bass. This concert is electric, literally and figuratively.
Set List: "Killer" "Enhanced Performance" "Playing With Stones" "breakfastlunchanddinner" "For All The Ladies"
