JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Badal Roy and Dharma Jazz, Rochester Jazz Festival

We were looking forward to seeing the tabla player, Badal Roy, with Dharma Jazz at Max's but Badal Roy was a no show. We had seen him years ago with Ravi Shankar and he plays on Ornette Coleman's "Tone Dialing" and a number of things with John McLaughlin. Dharma Jazz found a pretty good sub in Dan Johnson but the piano player had the better sense of rhythm. It appeared to be his band even though he announced that it was a collective. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
