Jazz guitarist¬†Reza Khan¬†hits the¬†City Winery¬†stage in New York City on Thursday night to celebrate his well-received new album release, ‚ÄúNext Train Home,‚ÄĚ which hit charts on both sides of jazz while garnering effusive reviews. Soon after he takes his final bow, he'll be back in his role as a¬†United Nations program manager jetting off to Uganda as part of peace and conflict operations. It's an unusual balancing act for the Bangladesh-born, New York City-based Khan, who manages to straddle creative and diplomatic duties throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East with aplomb.

Globetrotting guitarist Reza Khan dropped his fifth album, 'Next Train Home,' on Friday. The twelve songs that he wrote and produced for the collection symbolize the discovery of his musical home, a multi-genre and multicultural mélange of straight-ahead and contemporary jazz enriched with world music and Brazilian jazz nuances. The album has already climbed into the top 100 on the Jazz Week chart based on radio spins from jazz radio stations while the smooth/contemporary jazz single, 'Drop of Faith,' featuring guitarist Nils, has earned most added honors on the Billboard chart.

It started out as just a few friends having fun making music together but grew into a recording project that to date has placed three singles on the¬†Billboard¬†chart with a fourth, ‚ÄúState of Mine,‚ÄĚ certain to follow suit, in part due to the distinctive rhythmic riffing of¬†Grammy-winning guitar legend¬†Nile Rodgers. Bassist¬†Allen Carman¬†shelved his music aspirations twenty years ago only to rekindle them after reconnecting with percussionist¬†Gumbi Ortiz¬†and keyboardist¬†Philippe Saisse¬†a couple years ago. Joined by drummer¬†Luis Alicea, the quartet became¬†The Allen Carman Project, a band scrapbooking contemporary jazz, R&B, Latin, Afro Cuban, funk and fusion with a bolt of added star power from prominent soloists: Rodgers, saxophonist¬†Andy Snitzer, trumpeter¬†Rick Braun¬†and guitarist¬†Marc Antoine. In the process, the ‚ÄúCarmanology‚ÄĚ album, produced by Ortiz and Saisse and featuring eight original songs, introduces the sound of an exciting and creative collaborative that will drop their debut disc April 5 on the¬†ACP Music¬†label.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†

Severely dehydrated from the oppressive heat during his travels from Mali to Uganda,¬†Reza Khan¬†was hospitalized after collapsing in a¬†United Nations¬†office. To avoid the lengthy hospitalization prescribed by doctors, he convinced them that he would recover faster if he was ensconced in a hotel room instead. During that five-day stay, he broke out his portable guitar and wrote the title track for his fifth album, ‚ÄúNext Train Home,‚ÄĚ which drops April 5.¬†¬†
