steve smith, george brooks, and prasanna
Composed of award winning drummer Steve Smith (Journey, Vital Information),
saxophonist and composer George Brooks (Summit, Bombay Jazz with Larry
Coryell), and guitarist and composer Prasanna (Dave Douglas, Vijay Iyer),
the Raga Bop Trio plays a fluidly inventive music that bravely and
insightfully combines improvisational traditions from around the world.
Drawing upon the urgency and harmonic density of jazz, the rhythmic
complexity and melodic richness of Indian classical music, and a range of
pan-African grooves, the uniquely-constructed trio’s music is simultaneously
ground breaking and refreshingly listenable. Their debut recording: Raga Bop
Trio is available on the Abstract Logix label at www.abstractlogix.com.
