Reggie Workman, a 2020 NEA Jazz Master, needs no introduction. His work with legends like John and Alice Coltrane, Art Blakey,  Thelonius Monk and countless others has become part of jazz history.   The forward looking musician is still stretching and he found an ideal new space for inspiration in his collaboration with the Brooklyn Raga Massive.  With Mari Tanaka creating an acoustic sea of drones on multiple tanpuras and sruti boxes, Samir Gupta on tabla and drumset and Pawan Benjamin on bansuri, sax and shenai, Reggie has discovered a new sonic pallette for his adventerous sonic exploration.
