"Dense and uncompromising, yet accessible and infinitely rewarding, The Book of the Storm is Reddy's most fully realized work yet, a high water mark in an ever expanding discography." —Troy Collins, AllAboutJazz.com
Recorded live at Yoshi's Jazz Club in San Francisco and Oakland, CA, the latest CD by the Asian American Orchestra showcases North Indian instruments and African percussion in new arrangements of classic Coltrane compositions.
A delightful collection of music that introduces the young and young at heart to chamber music and the classical woodwind quintet through music, story and song. A Parents' Choice Approved Award winner!
