We get to hang with the great New York saxophonist Arun Luthra and check out some of his live recordings.  He’s got a big, free concert coming up this Friday with his Konokol Jazz Project, this Friday at Flushing Town Hall.  

Arun Luthra is one of the premier saxophonists and composers on New York’s jazz scene, and is one of the small group of American jazz musicians of Indian heritage who have continued to explore to possibilities of fusing the modern post-bop sound with elements of Indian classical music, as well drawing from a wide variety of modern & classic musical influences to create a vibrant new sound & style.  He has performed the music of his Konnakol Jazz Project worldwide, including Japan, Italy, the U.K., Australia, and throughout the United States.
