Lars Moller leads a line-up of Danish and Indian jazz musicians, who merge two worlds on 'Glow of Benares'- 25 years ago, Moller studied jazz in New York before going to India to study their traditional instruments and the raga. This release is a follow up to what is considered the climax so far in Moller's career as a jazz composer, "ReWrite of Spring" (2015), which was a large-scale reworking of Stravinsky's iconic 'Le Sacre du printemps." All About Jazz wrote "Ambitious project, brilliantly conceived," while Downbeat Magazine wrote: "A soaring, sprawling conception, combining exquisite detail with monumental vision." This colorful and dramatic album of compositions which combine Indian melodic ragas and rhythms with the orchestral formats of jazz and western music is expected to be just as well received.
