about

Towards the end of my formal studies with late and great Ustadt Imrat Khan he said, “Todd, you are one of the few who have climbed and mastered the two great mountains of music; Classical North Indian music with all its advancements in melody and Western music with all its advancements in chordal harmony!”

This recording was a way to bridge 10 years dedicated study in Classical North Indian music and a life long study of Traditional American Jazz & Composition.Tracking took place over three sessions. Each recording was done in its entirety with no overdubs.

West East originally titled East West has its history in a love for the two great improvisational forms; Classical North Indian Raga and Traditional American Jazz. Title change came about primarily because I am a Western student of music studying Eastern music.
