Sachal Vasandani is one of the most startling and significant additions to the vocal jazz world in years. Not content with the standard “Sinatra revisited” approach most male vocalists take, Sachal’s sound is a singular blend of jazz, pop, Indian music, and other musical influences. His debut recording, Eyes Wide Open, is a refreshing set of originals and cleverly reinvented standards and pop tunes. His second release, We Move, is set to be released on September 15.
