Rudresh Mahanthappa

Saturday, February 11, 7pm

Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Hero Trio, featuring François Moutin on bass and Rudy Royston on drums, is a tribute to the heroes of the alto saxophonist. Honoring legendary saxophone players who excelled in the trio format, such as Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz and Ornette Coleman, Mahanthappa also interprets works by Charlie Parker, Keith Jarrett, Stevie Wonder, and Johnny Cash, moving the focus away from his own compositions to pay tribute to his greatest influences. All of the material is presented in Mahanthappa’s characteristically original arrangements and approached with the greatest degree of freedom and spontaneity in trio format.

Over the course of an illustrious twenty-five-year career Rudresh Mahanthappa’s music making has constantly pushed at the artistic boundaries to encompass such diverse influences as classic bebop, the flash and fury of electric fusion, and the complexities of Carnatic music, while always maintaining a clear sense of his own fiercely intelligent, uncompromising musical personality.

“Jaw-dropping, one of the finest saxophonists going.”
