    Playing on Rudresh Mahanthappa's new album, which NPR is previewing this week:

    I enjoyed that, Fiuczynski is always good fun to listen to. I've never heard of Mahanthappa but that was some pretty fierce and funky playing.

      It's interesting that you'd enjoy that, given your feelings on jazz.

      Mahanthappa released a really great album a few years ago called Kinsmen that was really the first record, IMO, to create a true jazz/Indian hybrid, rather than using those textures and rhythms as a template, as McLauglin and Lane mostly did. Might be worth checking out.

        Some things connect and many don't.., that had me gripped from the start. I'll check that out, thanks!

      I used to listen to her records a lot, but it had totally slipped my mind that they'd played together.

      She's collaborated with Jason Moran in recent years on a kind of Fats Waller dance party project. Moran is involved in a lot of things, and he doesn't release much as a leader, as jazz musicians go, so who knows whether any of it will ever make it to record.
