Bishu Chatterjee, bass, leads the band this Friday. Bishu has been part of the regular jazz rotation since the beginning, back in late 2002, and has been integral to the second Friday sequence for years. The quintet Bishu has assembled for tonight features Ian Carey on trumpet, Aaron Bennett on sax; John Kiskaddon on piano; and Jeff Weinmann on drums.


Watch also for Bishu’s date at the end of the month, on September 27th, 4:30-6:30 pm, with his group Zejara (zen-jazz-raga), where Indian classical and jazz traditions intersect. That date will include Vivek Anand, voice; Aaron Bennett – sax; Bishu Chatterjee – bass; and Surya Prakash – drums.
