Jazz vocalist Sachal Vasandani, hailed as one of the rising stars of the jazz world and praised for a “golden voice" enhanced by “emotion and intellect, will perform at 8 p.m. June 3 at the Spa Little Theater, Avenue of the Pines, Saratoga Springs, NY.

The Chicago-born artist first began attracting attention as a University of Michigan music major when he was named DownBeat magazine's Collegiate Jazz Vocalist of the Year in 1999.

After moving to New York and working for a time as a Wall Street investment banker, Vasandani quickly became a part of the jazz scene, and made a musical home in storied clubs like the Zinc Bar. He was tapped for a number of guest performances and recordings, notably by the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.

After Vasandani's break-through debut recording, “Eyes Wide Open" he began touring extensively. He opened for such disparate artists from jazz trumpeter Chris Botti to pop singer Joan Osborne, garnering respect from a diverse spectrum of audiences. Vasandani's second album, “We Move," was released in September 2009 to excellent reviews and was chosen in November as a New York Times Critic's Pick.

The concert is part of Saratoga Performing Arts Center's extended season series.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
