Rafiq Bhatia: Standards Vol. 1 (EP Release)

with Vuyo Sotashe & Chris Pattishall

7pm doors • 8pm show


Composer and guitarist Rafiq Bhatia, “one of the most intriguing figures in music today” (New York Times), is an omnivorous experimentalist who moves fluidly between jazz and rock, acoustic and electronic, and Indian and American musical influences. In his latest project, Standards Vol. 1, he collaborates with some of jazz’s most distinguished musicians on a surprising and oblique take on the canonical jazz repertoire. The results retain some of the texture and feeling of jazz, but sit firmly outside of the music’s conventions. You may have heard these songs before, but you’ve never heard them like this.

With Nina Moffitt (vocals), Jack Hill (bass), Ian Chang (drums), and Chris Pattishall (piano).

Support from Vuyo Sotashe and Chris Pattishall.
