Rudresh Mahanthappa: Samdhi

"At heart Mr. Mahanthappa, an alto saxophonist of slashing clarity, has long been a proponent of fusion, at least in the cross-cultural sense of the word. His most recent album, 'Samdhi' (ACT), evokes another usage, with a driving electro-acoustic band featuring the guitarist David Gilmore and the bassist Rich Brown ... along with ... the mridangam player Anantha R. Krishnan" (Nate Chinen, "Jazz Listings," New York Times, 4/19/12).
