lto Saxophonist RUDRESH MAHANTHAPPA Presents His Reinvented Quartet with the Premiere of GAMAK featuring guitarist DAVID FIUCZYNSKI, bassist FRANÇOIS MOUTIN and drummer DAN WEISS April 8 @Cornelia Street Cafe April 9 @Jazz Gallery
(Published: March 02, 2011)

After tremendously acclaimed collaborations with Bunky Green (Apex) and Kadri Gopalnath (Kinsmen) as well as leading the Indo-Pak Coalition trio, alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa returns to his quartet setting previously featured on albums such as Black Water, Mother Tongue and Codebook.

Mahanthappa will unveil his reinvented quartet with the world premiere of Gamak, on April 8 at the Cornelia Street Cafe and on April 9 at the Jazz Gallery. The quartet will feature David Fiuczynski on guitar, François Moutin on bass and Dan Weiss on drums.

The major transformation now is the shift from piano to electric guitar with the inclusion of Fiuczynski, Rudresh's partner in crime in Jack DeJohnette's current group. David's unparalleled versatility and virtuosity along with his unique abilities to convey alternate tunings and microtonal ornamentation elevate the possibilities of this ensemble. Combined with Mahanthappa's frequent bandmates, the ever-inventive Moutin on bass and Weiss on drums, this group is surely unstoppable. Gamak will reach great heights in presenting a contemporary American music that synthesizes Western and Non-Western musical forms and concepts.

Gamak was created with support from Chamber Music America's New Works: Creation and Presentation Program, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Foundation.

Gamak is a sponsored Project of Artspire, a Program of the New York Foundation for the Arts with funding provided by New York State Council on the Arts.
