On November 22nd, 2013, Sachal Studios will present Jazz and All That in memory of Jay Brubeck at 8 PM at the Rose Theater, collaborating with The Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis collaborates with the Sachal Jazz Ensemble, master musicians from Pakistan who incorporate ancient instruments, such as sitar, sarod, tabla, and dholak into the sounds and rhythms of iconic jazz repertoire. This collaboration is JALC's latest installment in a string of cross-cultural investigations, which have paired the JLCO with musicians from Ghana and Spain, among others, as the organization actualizes its mission to make jazz available globally by interfacing the sounds of jazz, grounded firmly in American values of blues and swing expression, with an international array of musical languages and configurations. 2012 Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is currently filming this remarkable ensemble for a documentary that will be released in 2014, which will conclude with the Sachal Jazz Ensemble's highly anticipated collaboration with the JLCO.
The ensemble will be releasing a recording on September 10th, which will include the orchestra's rendition of songs by Stevie Wonder, R.E.M., and others. You can find a youtube video of "Everybody Hurts" here
