Sarodist Anupam Shobhakar and guitarist Joel Harrison's new recording, “Leave the Door Open” features original compositions and arrangements of songs from India and America, performed by a remarkable group of New York-based jazz musicians.

This recording stands out as a true collaboration between a classical Indian musician and a jazz-based American.
Both individuals provide innovative compositions as well as unusual versions of Willie Dixon’s “Spoonful”, a Bengali folksong, and the gospel tune “Deep River.” Many of the pieces were developed in tandem.
The current touring group will include Dan Weiss (drums/ tabla) and Michael Janisch (bass)
Both Shobhakar and Harrison are steeped in their own traditions, yet are open and admiring of each other’s history. Shobhakar hails from the Maihar Gharana, a legacy which has produced artists such as Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and Pt Ravi Shankar. He is perhaps the only sarodist alive willing and able to sit with New York jazz musicians and convincingly merge into their sound.
