This event has ended.

Rudresh Mahanthappa has made a name for himself with his intoxicating blend of jazz and Southern Indian music and the “bladelike articulation” (New York Times) of his sax. This performance weaves in a new component: the elegant and electrifying influences of Charlie Parker. In keeping with the free spirit of jazz, Mahanthappa lets Bird’s style inspire him to new compositions, and the result is music that swings, trills, and trembles in turns.
