Purbayan Chatterjee – Intezaar [Review]

Intezaar. The Wait. Clarinet meets sitar. A colorful blend.

In our recent discussion Purbayan Chatterjee himself told us: “The art is in breaking the rules”.

Wind instruments you can hear in classical orchestras of the Western world, together with an American Jazz sounded piano, delivered using the secret (and for some, exotic) ingredients from the rich music tradition of India. On top of that, there are some gorgeous vocal deliveries from Pratibha Singh Baghel and Ustad Rashid Khan.  Finally the skilful improvisations which balance between jazz and more traditional scales showcasing the unquestionable virtuosity of the featured artists.

Adventurous, spirited, music which is best enjoyed by people who have realised that music is the universal language of mankind.
