Kaash and the Sunny Jain Collective at the Blue Note in New York

By Published: | 6,998 views
The core of the Collective is without a doubt Jain and Gary Wang on string bass. The recordings do not make clear what a tight unit the two of them are, and the power that they produce while remaining nimble and focused. There is not a hint of anything repetitive in anything Wang does, and he manages to be melodic within music that has few changes. Jain is a joy to listen to and to feel. Jazz has had many drummers that drive the music themselves, but Jain manages to find and cultivate that crease between the two worlds.

Outstanding music played by musicians with fire and intellect, the set ended much too quickly.
