Drummer-Chef Sunny Jain Brings Treats for the Ears and the Taste Buds to Lincoln Center

Source: New York Music Daily

Last night Lincoln Center’s Jordana Leigh enthusiastically introduced Sunny Jain as “Our original – an artist who’s had a long history with Lincoln Center…the first artist to play the atrium.” The Red Baraat mastermind and dhol bass drum player is also an accomplished cook.

And the chutney was tasty  – although he admitted it lacked the hot pepper burn of his first batch. Bring ...

This album – streaming at Soundcloud – doesn’t have the white-knuckle intensity of Gurvich’s landmark 2013 Middle Eastern jazz collection, BabEL, but its scope is even more global. Gurvich is playing a rare trio date comprising three quarters of the ...
