ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Saxophonist, arranger, and composer Arun Luthra first established himself as a young musician of promise through his private studies in Boston with Jay Brandford (now a New York-based saxophonist whose credits include the Smithsonian Jazz Orchestra, the Vanguard Orchestra, and the Bobby Short Orchestra) and subsequently in his studies with the internationally renowned saxophonist Mike McMullen in Sacramento, California.

In Sacramento, Arun Luthra gained extensive experience as a member of Fantasia Records recording artist Early Times' touring group in tours of the West Coast, including performances in San Francisco, Portland, Olympia, Seattle, and Sacramento. He also gained prominence leading his own saxophone and piano duo with Timeless recording artist Joe Gilman, and as musical director, arranger and saxophonist/flutist for Sacramento's then leading Afro-Cuban group, the Orquesta Les Moncada, earning a Sacramento Area Music Award (SAMMY) nomination for best salsa musician for his work with this group.

Arun Luthra completed his B.F.A. in jazz and contemporary music in 1996 in New York after extensive studies with such major artistic and educational figures as Reggie Workman, JoAnne Brackeen, Joe Chambers, Lee Konitz, Armen Donelian, Rory Stuart, Jimmy Owens, Vincent Herring, Tim Berne, Billy Harper, George Garzone, John Stubblefield, Andy McKee, Bernard Purdie, Loren Schoenberg, Charli Persip, and Maria Schneider.

Since his arrival in New York Arun Luthra has established himself as one of the most promising and active players of his generation on the local scene, having amassed an impressive list of credits. Arun is currently an adjunct professor at the world-renowned New School University Jazz & Contemporary Program, leads his own quartet called Svaha, and records and performs nationwide with many of New York's best currently established and emerging musicians and in jazz's most prestigious venues.
