Time Wise brings together musicians who speak many different “languages”, from jazz and blues idioms to Hindustani classical music. Everything we’ve heard and everything we play feeds into the new lexicon we’re designing together.

Ranging from swinging in the form of canonical tracks like “Take Five” and “Cocktails for Two” to more rhythmic originals such as “In a Thread” and “Fits,” the set will leave audiences with more questions about form than answers. things to come.

This tribute explores the extraordinary saga of an extraordinary man, Dr. Albert Schweitzer. “Oganga! brings to life the journey of a man who gave up a comfortable life and felt compelled to live and work as a doctor in the jungles of equatorial Africa, a man who gave his whole life unconditionally to the service of poorest and most miserable of his fellow human beings, with much compassion, humility and love. Remarkably, he was also a true Renaissance man, a theologian, a musician, a virtuoso organist, a prolific writer and author, a profound philosopher, but above all a great humanist. This book, written by Dr. Farokh E. Udwadia, eminent physician and author, is a meditation on a life of selflessness, heroism, sacrifice and above all universal love for all of God’s creation. Interspersed with works by Bach, it is also a work where the love of music that binds the two good doctors, the subject and the writer, comes to life on stage.
