about

Turquoise Sessions from Joe Lasqo takes a fresh look at two of the world's most powerful music cultures - India and Japan - through the lenses of 20th-century compositional/piano techniques and jazz improvisation and uses Asian musical forms to surprising effect on modernist material. The result is elegantly startling - ragas played in a style as if Debussy had lived in Mumbai and ancient Japanese shakuhachi and gagaku "standards" refracted through the serialist prisms of Messiaen, early Stockhausen, and Paul Bley. Reflecting a repertoire of Indo-Modernist and "Neo-Gaku" work pioneered in residency at San Francisco's legendary Viracocha, Joe takes a unique approach to the combination of piano and Asian music that is a sound all his own.
