Lucian Ban: Enesco Re-Imagined

Romanian pianist Ban underscores just how borderless jazz has become today with his impressive multi-national band here featuring top-notch jazz talents from the US, Europe and South Asia. Mixing up classical elegance, with dirty Downtown skronk against pulsing Indian rhythms this octet features the likes of tenorist Tony Malaby, trumpeter Ralph Alessi, violinist Albrecht Maurer and tabla drummer/singer Badal Roy, in a dazzling mix of sounds.
