Revati Violinist Arun Ramamurthy's Trio discovers new aspects of millennia-old pieces and moments of organic conversation between two traditions, both based on a balance of rigor and freedom
Arun Ramamurthy Trio (ART) brings a fresh approach to age-old South Indian classical repertoire. The trio’s collaborative sound is driven by the propulsive rhythm section of drummer Sameer Gupta & and bassist Perry Wortman. The Carnatic canon is remixed in this seamless integration of styles as the group expands on the traditional compositions in explosive, improvisational flights of fancy. Selected by NPR's New Sounds as a Top New Release and listed as a Best Release of 2014 by All About Jazz' Dan McCleneghan, ART's debut album 'Jazz Carnatica' has received critical acclaim. Featured performance venues include Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Jazz Gallery, Ragas Live Festival at Pioneer Works (Brooklyn), David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Cornelia Street Cafe, Museum of Moving Images and more.
Jazz Carnatica by the Arun Ramamurthy Trio is a beautiful, exotic, ear-opening listening experience. The group and the leader, with a little help from their friends, sound like part of the early stages of the push to popularize an overlooked (in the United States) segment of the World Music sound, a music so beautiful it can make you cry. Track Listing: Dhanasri; Maha G; 4th Dimension; Simple Joys; Darbari Kanada; Govardhana; Delusions; Conception; Revati. The best show I ever attended was Miles Davis, live at Red Rocks in Denver. His performance was spellbinding and he never said a single word, communicating with the audience via large placards, and his music music, of course. The first jazz record I bought was the latest Miles Davis album in the early 1970s, as a birthday present for my partner.
This one gives Mahanthappa’s minor masterpiece a good run for its money. Ramamurthy didn’t stumble upon the right formula for mixing Western and Subcontinental forms of music, he’s prepared for this undertaking practically his entire life.
The Arun Ramamurthy Trio (ART) performs Jazz Carnatica.

New York, NY: Rigor and Freedom: Arun Ramamurthy Trio Stays True to the Raga and Finds the Heart of Jazz. It’s just in D. Really? the bassist asked, skeptical. Yes, the whole piece. Not your typical exchange for a jazz trio, but part of the compelling challenge of Jazz Carnatica (release: October 28, 2014), the dialogue of South Indian Classical music and jazz begun by Indian-American violinist Arun Ramamurthy.
