Sachal Vasandani & Romain Collin
Thursday, January 19
Black Cat JAZZ@theEDGE! Presents…
Our first LIVE RECORDING of 2023: Sachal Vasandani
Recognized for his singular voice, Sachal Vasandani’s tone and unique phrasing mark him as one of today’s most compelling voices. His latest recording, ‘Still Life,’ is a collaboration with French / New York-based pianist Romain Collin, released July 15, 2022, on Edition Records. The album reworks classic and modern songs interspersed with spellbinding and memorable originals. It features up-close and personal re-workings of classics by outstanding songwriters Billie Eilish, Paul Simon, Sam Smith, Peter Gabriel, and others, alongside unforgettable originals.
“While Still Life is in some ways an ode to simplicity, it also embodies the emotional complexity and improvisational spirit of contemporary jazz.”
Sachal and his band will preview new music from his upcoming project, produced by drummer Nate Smith, that ranges stylistically from Nina Simone to D’Angelo, marrying Sachal’s signature vocal sound with the stylistic influences of The Meters, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, and more.
