With his 2007 debut, Eyes Wide Open, vocalist Sachal Vasandani established himself as a promising new voice in jazz. He further honed his distinctive approach with the critically acclaimed 2009 release, We Move, and promptly took “Rising Star” honors for male jazz vocals in the 2010 DownBeat Critics Poll. Vasandani’s latest Mack Avenue album, Hi-Fly, proves the singer is one of the most versatile artists to emerge in recent memory. It’s an exciting mix of standards, originals and pop covers showcasing Vasandani’s ability to filter a wide range of material through his highly individual vision. According to NPR, “every now and then you hear a special voice that makes you sit up and take notice… Sachal Vasandani has that voice.”  We concur wholeheartedly and invite you to experience one of the beacons of the modern jazz scene.
