This is the sort of thing a jazz fan’s daydreams are made of… Bird Calls is a masterpiece.

—All About Jazz

One of the most important artists in jazz today and just named Best Jazz Artist of 2015 by The Village Voice, alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa blends South Indian musical concepts with a seemingly boundless range of contemporary jazz. His latest project, Bird Calls, is a profound 21st-century tribute to Charlie Parker and includes Mahanthappa’s stellar young quintet.
