Jog Blues

6pm doors • 7pm show

About

Deep tradition meets spontaneous improvisation in Jog Blues, a daring new combination of jazz, blues, and Indian classical music. A decidedly twenty-first-century mix, Jog Blues creates an experience that draws from longstanding traditions and swings toward the future. Named for Jog, the Indian midnight raga, and the blues, the most American of music genres, the band balances known forms with thrilling live creations. The result is a journey into suffering, joy, and liberation that is not to be missed.
