Alto Saxophonist of the Year plays McCarter Theatre – March 16th

rudresh-mahanthappa

On Friday, March 16th at 8 PM in the Berlind Theatre the alto-saxophonist and composer Rudresh Mahanthappa comes to McCarter Theatre Center with his latest project, his Indo-Pak Coalition, in which he is joined by Pakistani-American guitarist Rez Abbasi and innovative percussionist Dan Weiss.  Few musicians share his ability to combine the expansive possibilities of his music with his culture, hybridizing progressive jazz with South Indian classical music. Since he first played the Berlind as an original member of Vijay Iyer’s quartet, he has won a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, and been named Alto Saxophonist of the Year five years running by Downbeat Magazine—which also named his 2015 CD Bird Calls the number one album of the year.
