Fred Friedman, Pedro Arroyo and KCBX are presenting Shweta Jhaveri at The Monday Club on Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 8:00 P.M. The Monday Club is located at 815 Monterey St. in SLO. Tickets are $20 in advance at Boo Boo Records and www.brownpapertickets.com and $25 at the door.
Her illustrous band features Will Bernard on guitar (a headliner with his own trio at Live Oak this year), Eyvind Kang on viola (recording and appearing with Bill Frisell the last several years) and Scott Amendola on drums and percussion (Nels Cline, Madeleine Peyroux and leader of his own group). This is an all-star band in itself.
“Shweta Jhaveri is to the raga for voice what Ravi Shankar is to the raga for sitar.”
“Filled with unexpected twists and turns that, after a number of revealing and rewarding listens, are clearly as much about 858’s approach to the music as it is the music itself, Sign of Life continues Frisell’s lifelong exploration of richly divergent yet ultimately convergent paths, drawn together in a myriad of permutations and combinations.”
