Posted on by pdxjazz

Vocalist Sachal Vasandani is set to make his Portland debut at Tony Starlight’s Supper Club-Lounge on June 18 at 8pm. The performance will feature his longstanding New York-based working ensemble, consisting of pianist Jeb Patton, bassist David Wong and drummer Kendrick Scott.

With two albums on Mack Avenue Records, Vasandani – a 2010 DownBeat “Rising Star” poll winner - established himself as one of the most promising voices in modern jazz, with a distinctive blend of jazz and pop.Vasandani’s third release, Hi-Fly, confirms the continued high praise and proves the singer is one of the freshest, most versatile artists to emerge onto the scene in recent memory. Hi-Fly is an exciting mix of standards, originals and pop covers showcasing Vasandani’s ability to filter a wide range of material through his highly individual vision. The album also features a special guest – Vasandani’s mentor and a godfather of jazz vocals, Jon Hendricks.

“On this record I wanted to share some of the joy of singing this music,” states Vasandani. “I worked through the turbulence that inspired the last record and just tried to have fun. I was thinking less about drawing the listener into my heart and more about celebrating.”
