Tim Berne - alto sax

Reid Anderson - bass


Broken Shadows is a quartet of kindred spirits communing over shared loves and common inspirations, radiating not only homage but aspiration – to make music with deep roots reach out into the present moment, alive and attuned and moving through our air now. These four musicians hailing from the urban northern half of America – Tim Berne, Chris Speed, Reid Anderson and Dave King – have banded together to reinterpret the timeless sounds conjured by great men from the rural South and heartland of the country: Ornette Coleman, Julius Hemphill, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden. These iconic figures created an ever-resonant avant-garde out of the folk-art influences of their early surroundings, a canon that comprises the hard blues and deep lament, keening celebration and hollering protest. Wound through the DNA of such avant-jazz classics as “Dogon A.D.,” “Lonely Woman,” “Civilization Day,” “Walls- Bridges” and “Song for Ché” are the age-old sounds of back-alley bars and carnival midways, funeral processions and holiday parades, the rave-ups of Saturday night shading into the hymns of Sunday morning. The way saxophonists Berne and Speed perform this music with the bass-and-drum team of Anderson and King has a rocking, roughhewn harmonic convergence wholly in keeping with the source materials, even as their improvisations have a searching, burning modernism of their own. To channel the cultural history of this music, the players of Broken Shadows can rely on their personal history as friends and collaborators; among various associations, Speed played in Berne’s Bloodcount band in the 1990s, while Anderson and King are two-thirds of the genre defying band The Bad Plus. This foursome is onto something special here – the emotive breath and beat of this music being undeniable, infectious; these are players known for their ability to take it out, but Broken Shadows gives them a vehicle to get down. — Bradley Bambarger

Epistrophy Arts is supported by individual contributions and by the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division of the Economic Development Department

mitaNag.jpghassanHaider.jpgsubhenChatterjee2018.jpg

Mita Nag, daughter of veteran satirist, Pandit Manilal Nag and granddaughter of Sangeet Acharya (a master musician) Gokul Nag, belongs to the Vishnupur Gharana of Bengal, a school of music nearly 300 years old. In terms of lineage, Mita is the sixth generation sitar player in her family, the tradition having begun with her fore fathers. It was with her grandfather Gokul Nag, who had become the Guru of a noted zamindar (feudal lord) family of Uttarpara, a Northern suburb town of Kolkata, that the music of the Nag family came into limelight. With her illustrious father Manilal, the sitar tradition of Vishnupur gharana was made known to the world. Mita was initiated into music at the tender age of four . She had shown rather early gestures of her love for music. Toddling with her tiny sitar Mita began her early training under the guidance of her mother who was also a disciple of Gokul Nag. Her grandfather’s encouragement and instructions through singing had much influence on her early reception of music, most noticeably, associating the instrument with song. Her tutelage under her father started at the age of six. Mita appeared for her debut performance at the age of ten years, the year 1979 being observed as the International Year of the Child. The same year Mita won the Junior National Talent Search Award of the Govt .of India. Mita has performed in a number of concerts, solo as well as duet recitals with her father in major cities of India and in many cities of the US, Canada, Japan and Europe. She was awarded the Junior Fellowship Award by the Human Resource Development, Govt of India, for her research project on Vishnupur Gharana. Mita has founded the Gokul Nag Memorial Foundation, a Trust for the promotion of Indian Classical Music, in the fond memory of her grandfather. Mita is a Masters in English Literature and an M.Phil. in English from The University of Kolkata.

Hassan Haider is an acknowledged Shehnai player. His family hails from Allahabad, and he was born in Kolkata (Calcutta). His father Ud. Ali Ahmed Hussain was a famous Shehnai maestro. His family has been representing this art form for generations. Hassan Haider received his training in Benaras and Senia Gharanas from his father. He also learned from Pt. Arvind Parikh, the famous sitar maestro from school of Ud. Imdad Khan, Ud. Enayat Khan and Ud. Vilayat Khan. Hassan’s great grandfather Ud. Wazir Ali Khan was a musician of distinction who was the first musician to ever perform the Shehnai at the Buckingham Palace in London, England in 1910 and was awarded by Pt. Motilal Nehru, the father of India’s first Prime Minister Jawharlal Nehru. Even at this young age, Hassan Haider has already performed at many important music festivals, venues and occasions in India, such as The Autumn Festival of Dance and Music in celebration of India’s 50th year of independence, Dover Lane Music Festival in Kolkata, Harballav Festival in Jalandhar, Uttarpara Sangeet Chakra in West Bengal, Sri Ram Shankarlal Festival in Delhi, Ud. Alauddin Khan Academy in Bhopal, Sangeet Natak Academy in Pune, only to name a few. All of his performances have been well reviewed in newspapers and magazines. He has toured and performed with his father in several countries outside India. Those include the USA, Canada, U.K., France, Switzerland and Belgium. He is regularly featured on Indian radio and television.

Subhen Chatterjee will accompany on Tabla. Subhen Chatterjee bases his style of playing to Lucknow Gharana that he learnt from his illustrious Guru tabla maestro Pandit Swapan Chowdhury. Not restricting himself to one single Gharana-Subhen went on to learn the intricacies & beauty of other Gharanas that he introduced in his playing & which has made his style of playing so unique & distinctive. Subhen has also created India’s leading fusion band, KARMA, which is still the only of its kind from the eastern part of India. Subhen’s recent collaboration with renowned percussionist, SIVAMANI, has enabled him to form another unique fusion band called FRIENDS OF DRUMS whose main objective is to help the lesser known yet very talented musicians sharing stage with renowned ones. His album BANDISH FUSION was nominated for JPF Music Awards (one of the USA’s leading music awards) in 2006. Subhen’s latest albums BANDISH FUSION: REDEFINED and BANDISH FUSION: THE LASTING LEGACY are already in the charts; both in India and abroad.

Celestial Strings – Hindustani Slide Guitar & Tabla

Venue: Allen Library Civic Auditorium, 300 N. Allen Drive, Allen TX 75013

Pt Debashish Bhattacharya   Slide Guitar
Nilan Chaudhuri   Tabla
   
   
   
   
DebashishBhattacharya2018.jpgNilanChaudhuri2018.jpg

Guitar maestro Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya evolves into a global inspiration in the arena of contemporary musical uprising. The musical journey is a counterpart to what remains a fond reminiscence of a child’s fancy with a Hawaiian lap guitar at the age of four. The multi-dimensional intrigue of invention became a passion with the making and widespread recognition of the patented Chaturangui (a 24-string hollow neck guitar), Gandharvi (a 14-string guitar which holds the longest glissando) and Anandi (a 4-string slide Ukulele ) which not only excels in sound variety and quality but has become the designer’s choice. With the lineage of Gurus like Pandit Brij Bhushan Kabra and Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty the inspiration has gone beyond performance. Born to musician parents Pt Debashish Bhattacharya, a child prodigy, was initiated into Indian classical singing, but was drawn to the guitar because of the ability to emulate the human voice by using the slide. Past performances of Debashish have include John McLaughlin and his latest incarnation of Shakti, Bob Brozman that resulted in the album Mahima. Led Kaapana, Martin Simpson are the others. The uncanny ability of sliding like a voice and mesmerizing tantrakaari ang put Debashish Bhattacharya as a leading slide guitarist of the world. This extremely personable and gifted artiste takes us on a timeless journey through the history of Indian Classical Music, bringing it into the 21st century, with detours into the Blues and Hawaiian music as well. His work has earned him president of India award in 1984, The Asiatic Society Gold Medal in 2005, Grammy nominee in 2009, BBC Planet Award for World Music in 2007 and Song Line Music Award winner in 2016. He has been featured in bill-board top 10, Song Line Magazine top 10, Central Asia and Asia Pacific world music top 10, Amazon top 100 albums, National Geography and world’s who’s who enlisted artists.

Nilan Chaudhuri has spent his entire life immersed in the tradition of Indian Classical Percussion. The son of Maestro Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri, Nilan received his first Tabla lesson from his father at the age of five. Nilan presented his first public Tabla solo at the age of eleven, at the Ali Akbar College of Music in San Rafael in the presence of Maestro Ud. Ali Akbar Khan. Within months of his first recital, sensing his passion and devotion to the art form, Nilan was accepted as a ganda bandan disciple of Khasaib. As a teenager, Nilan was deeply inspired by the Jazz-fusion Band ‘Oregon’ a group spearheaded by his cousin, percussionist Colin Walcott, a student of Ustad Alla Rakha. The band’s music inspired Nilan to dive deeper into the world of rhythm, and in 2003 Nilan began studying the Drumset with legendary Bay Area soul drummer, Sly Randolph. He would go on to perform in Jazz Ensembles throughout High School and University, winning awards for his unique cross pollinations in eastern and western music – specifically his innate ability to transcribe Tabla rhythms, referred to as ‘Bols,’ to the Drumset. In 2005, Nilan made his debut duet performance in concert with his Father and sarangi master, Ramesh Misra, in Queens, New York; Later that year, the duo would go on to perform for the momentous occasion of Basant Bahar’s 25th anniversary celebration. He has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Hindustani Classical Music’s greatest treasures, such as maestros Alam Khan, Ud. Shujaat Khan, Pt. Ramesh Misra, and Ud. Amjad Ali Khan in a constantly growing list of prestigious venues, such as Carnegie Hall, The Fillmore, The Monterey Pop Festival, and The Fox Theater. His collaborations also include crossover work with celebrated artists, Arjun Verma, Manik Khan, Gaayatri Kaundinya, Jack Perla, The Toronto Tabla Ensemble, members of Brooklyn Raga Massive, Dennis Chambers, Miles Schon, and DJ Teeko. In addition to maintaining a busy performing schedule, Nilan teaches Tabla throughout the Bay Area as a faculty member at the Ali Akbar College of Music, and as the Director of Percussion at Chitresh Das Institute.

IndradeepGhosh2018.jpgIndrajitBanerjee2018.jpgSubrataBhattacharya2018.jpg

Indradeep Ghosh is one of the top ranking violinists in India and a trailblazer for Senia Maihar Gharana. He initially started playing violin at the tender age of six under the guidance of Sri Anamitra Mustafi. He has been under the tutelage of Professor Smt. Sisirkana Dhar Chowdhury since 1991. He also had the privilege of getting training with different maestros of Indian Classical Music including Pandit V.G. Jog and Pandit Kumar Bose. Indradeep is one of the few Indian Classical violinists to play a custom made five-string violin with eight sympathetic strings, modeled after the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle. The sympathetic strings allow for a fuller, resonant sound. His performances integrate many different styles and techniques of Western Classical and Oriental music. His style of playing can be described as a blend of Gayki and Tantrakari Ang with his fortes being taan and jhala. Along the years, Indradeep has participated in several music festivals and concerts of India and abroad such as 10th Asia Festival in Spain, 42nd EUYC in Switzerland, YOMAD Festival in Croatia, Yoga—Vidya Music Festival Germany, Biswa Banga Sammelan, Baba Allauddin Memorial Festival, , Salt Lake Music Festival, Prativa Utsav organized by EZCC, Dover Lane Music Festival, Kal Ke Kalakar Sangeet Sammelan Mumbai, Kala Prakash and Kashi sangeet Samaj, Varanasi and many more. He has to his credit many Classical and Fusion Music albums. He is the Artistic Director for Global Creative Arts Academy, Houston, Texas and also serves as a faculty instructor at School of Indian Percussion and Music, Austin, Texas.

Sitarist Indrajit Banerjee is one of the leading exponents of the Maihar Gharana. He was born in a musical family, unique due to the large number of accomplished artists in Hindustani Classical Music. Some of these family members include his guru, Pandit Kartick Kumar (Sitar), Pandit Barun Kumar Pal (Hamsa Veena), Niladri Kumar (Sitar), Partho Das (Sitar), Aparna Roy (Surbahar). He got inspiration from his sitarist mother, Manju Banerjee, who was a disciple of late Nikhil Banerjee, and afterwards, Santosh Banerjee. Indrajit’s training began with his maternal grandfather, Bankim Kumar Pal, who was the disciple of Inayat Khan, and Birendra Kishore Roy Chowdhuri (Kochi Babu). He then took training under Pandit Manilal Nag of Bishnupur Gharana. Later on, he took intensive training from his uncle, Pandit Kartick Kumar, who is a senior disciple of Pandit Ravi Shankar. He is an A grade artist of All India Radio and National Television, Panel Artist for Indian Council Of Cultural Relations, has served as Judge for A.I.R (Kolkata), and is a member of the American Federations of Musicians, and voting member of The Recording Academy (Grammies). He was awarded the Gokul Nag Memorial Medal in 1987 by Bangia Sangeet Parishad, (W. Bengal), “Sur Mani”in 1990 by Sur Sringal Samsad Bombay, Avinav Kala Samman in 1997 by Avinav Kala Parishad (Bhopal). Parangotsava-2007 (a festival held in Mysore, Karnataka) recognised him as Veteran (Pandit). Indrajit has been touring extensively toured in the U.K., Europe, Caribbean Islands, Lebanon , Hawaii, Alaska, Costa Rica, Brazil and Canada for the last 18 years as a solo sitar artist. He has also collaborated with several artists from the West, including STING (Channel V Awards), Yaron Herman, Abbos Kosimov, Goodman Theatre, Fareed Haque, etc. He has several solo sitar albums to his credit. Indrajit has National and International awards from India and the USA. Indrajit is also a composer and has arranged music for several albums and award winning documentary films.

Subrata Bhattacharya is one of the leading tabla players in India today. He has received his taalim under Shri Tamal Krishna Chatterjee, Shri Nripen Karmakar and Shri Tapan Kr. Banerjee before he was finally accepted as a pupil of tabla maestro Pt. Shankar Ghosh, all of whom honed his talent to the level of refinement now witnessed by audiences everywhere. He has since proved himself a worthy exponent of the Farukhabad Gharana. Recognition of his talent has come in the form of such awards as the Sangeet Prabhankar and the Gold Medal and the Saangeet Praveen from Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahadad, and Sangeet Bhushan from the Bhatkhande College, Lucknow. Renowned artists whom he has accompanied in the past few years are Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Dr. L. Subramaniam, Dr.N.Rajam, Pt. Buddhaditya Mukherjee, Ud Shahid Parvez Khan, Ud Ali Ahmed Hussain, Chitraveena Ravikiran, Pt. Tejendra Narayan Majumdar, Pt. Samaresh Chaudhury, etc. He is a visiting professor at the University of Urbana Champaign,IL. The next milestone of his creativity and innovation is "Naad- The Everlasting Sound", a group he has formed to experiment with fusion music. It seems the next inevitable step in Subrata's career as a mingling and merging of eastern, middle eastern and western styles of music is the trend among makers and lovers of music these days. He is been a part of the Chicago based Indo -Jazz band Flat Earth Ensemble since its inception.

I do still plan to go.  Barry Altschul!  And Burton Greene...I used to have an obscure record by him titled Variations Of A Coffee Machine, on an obscure label named Kharma, run by a guy named Dan Serro.... check out what they released: Kharma Records.

Too far for me on a Monday night.

Just got back.  Very, very good performance.  The trio (Greene, Pavone, Altschul) were very strong.  Vigorous, frequently dissonant, played with assurance and a deep empathy between them.  They played some originals to start the concert, and also played some trio pieces in-between backing Waters.  I really liked their take on Monk's Off Minor; certainly true to Monk but Greene, in particular, brought his own thing to it.  I was very impressed with Burton Greene's playing.

Patty Waters... It was interesting to hear her.  Truly a case of time catching up to her: where what she did in the Sixties sounded strange and odd, now sounds more familiar because others have followed her path.  She doesn't have the voice anymore to yelp and scream; it's now a small voice, breathy, quavering, a very personal sound.  The trio toned down their playing while backing her, but still frequently overpowered her voice.  It was obvious they loved and respected her, and loved playing behind her.

Another interesting facet for me was her song selection.  Here there was truly a time warp, as if we were transported back to the mid Sixties.  She drew heavily from the Billie Holiday songbook, but exclusively songs where the singer is lonely, pining for her man, lost without him.  Even songs that were not Holiday's seem to fit this mold, such as Ornette's "Lonely Woman."  I can't imagine any female singer today presenting such a portrait of a woman who is nothing without the love of her man.

One more observation about Waters: it's clear she's not a "professional" jazz singer.  She does her own thing, comes from her own place.  One could call it a "naif" singing style - more someone singing in a shower than entertaining a crowd.  The audience is witnessing a very private sort of performance, of someone who comes across as, and may indeed be, very fragile.  I think this audience was very moved.
