On what would have been John Coltrane’s 91st birthday, we welcome the globally recognized artists’ collective Brooklyn Raga Massive (BRM) to play unique homage to the legendary jazz saxophonist. As collective member David Ellenbogen states, “There is something magical happening right now. There is a new generation of musicians who are disciples of some of the greatest living Indian Classical musicians, but who also speak the languages of jazz, funk, reggae—not as outsiders, but as insiders of both traditions.”

The performers include Jay Gandhi (bansuri), Pawan Benjamin (saxophone), Trina Basu (violin), Brandee Younger (harp), Marc Cary (piano, Rhodes), Neel Murgai (sitar), Sameer Gupta (drums, tabla), Rashaan Carter (bass) and Michael Gam (bass), Arun Ramamurthy (carnatic violin). Melding chamber ragas, funk, pop, jazz, western classical, and African traditions, BRM will bring Coltrane back into being.
