Arun Ramamurthy Trio on In All Languages

Sunday, December 7, 2014 - 11:00pm to Monday, December 8, 2014 - 2:00am

Tonight's In All Languages will feature an exclusive live performance from the Arun Ramamurthy Trio, celebrating the release of their new album, Jazz Carnatica.

The Arun Ramamurthy Trio perform centuries old classic South Indian compositions with jazz instrumentation and improvisation.

The trio’s collaborative sound is driven by the propulsive rhythm section of drummer Sameer Gupta & and bassist Perry Wortman. The Carnatic canon is remixed in this seamless integration of styles as the group expands on the traditional compositions in explosive, improvisational flights of fancy. Arun’s original compositions pay homage to Carnatic rhythmic structures and rich tonalities while expanding the music with a modern jazz backbeat.

This performance was recorded on Wednesday at the Brooklyn Raga Massive Jam Session at the Art Cafe.
