The Jazz-Rock trio yesterday descended on the stage of The Piano Man last night to win hearts. The band started their set with their staple kick-starter Section+Transcendence in the dimly lit Piano Man Club. The club had their reservations full on 24th itself.
The band stormed through the setlist comprising of Heart Of Darkness, Cronos, and Convergence (new tune for Foxtrot). They also played two of their new tunes Train To Auschwitz and American Dream. The band with finesse amazed the crowd. They earned a shower of compliments not only from the audience but also from the club owner, Arjun Sagar Gupta. This was a clear winner so far in the entire Delhi chapter of the Foxtrot album tour.
Their next stop will be Mumbai where they will play with Shonai at antiSOCIAL, Khar on 1st of June. The next gig today is Syncopation from 9-30pm.
The journey started with a call at 1:40 in the morning from The Bodhisattwa Trio frontman Bodhisattwa Ghosh. Drummer Premjit Dutta suddenly contracted cold and got fever. So we decided to get a proper accommodation while traveling to Pune. It was not a plan as the gig was in the evening around 9 and we were reaching the city around 12 noon. We thought we would spend the day sound checking and relaxing at the venue. But fate had something else stored for us. Continue reading Pune chapter of The FOXTROT Project ft. TBT accomplished, after lot of troubles.
Our compilation project The FOXTROT Project V2.0 has started with recording The Bodhisattwa Trio and Neel Sarkar Project. Last Saturday the Trio performed at Calcutta School of Music as a a part of their tour with German singer/composer Tabea Louisa. Arijit recorded the entire show as a part of archiving the entire gig and possibly salvaging at least one tune for the compilation is in the making.

Arijit will record The Bodhisattwa Trio again next month for capturing another new composition. This is going to be recorded at our studio which has been recently upgraded with new gears.
Next day to CSM recording, i.e. last Sunday, Arijit recorded Neel Sarkar with percussionist Pritam Sengupta with their acoustic track Niffari. Neel played a Persian Setar with Pritam accompanying on Duff. Their soft earthen sounding track will surely please the listeners.
The next recording is a choice between Syncopation and Rahul Guha Roy, whoever, fixes a date first. For the delhi based trio Syncopation, Arijit will be traveling to Delhi to record them in their studio. While Guha Roy has been preparing for the tracks he is intending to record between gigs and mixing sessions at our studio, the Delhi trio is sorting out scheduling conflicts and studio spaces for recording their share of contribution to be made in The FOXTROT Project V2.0
