Rudresh Mahanthappa

Rudresh Mahanthappa is a groundbreaking composer/saxophonist.  For many years he has been pushing the boundaries of where his music can go, by tempering jazz improv with structures taken from experimental music and compositional strategies from music of other cultures, including his own South Indian Roots. He is composing a new piece, How Was Your Year?, for the Bang on a Can All-Stars’ clarinetist/saxophonist Ken Thomson.
