Wynton Marsalis’ second night at Jazz in Marciac features a dynamic collaboration with The Sachal Jazz Ensemble, master musicians from Pakistan who incorporate Eastern instruments, such as sitar, sarod, tabla, and dholak into the sounds and rhythms of iconic jazz repertoire. Marsalis will be joined by Walter Blanding (saxophone), Carlos Henriquez (bass), Ali Jackson (drums), and Dan Nimmer (piano). The Sachal Jazz Ensemble is led by Nijat Ali, with Baqar Abbas (flute), Nafees Ahmad (sitar), Ijaz Hussain (tabla), Rafiq Ahmed (naal) and Najaf Ali (dholak, mardang).
The Sachal Jazz Ensemble will join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in New York City in November 2013.
