Double Header: Tyft/Rudresh Mahanthappa Quartet

Jez Nelson raids the archives to present the finest concerts of the past year, including sets from international jazz-metal power trio Tyft and New Yorker Rudresh Mahanthappa's quartet, both given at The Wardrobe in Leeds.

Led by Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson, Tyft also features New York reeds player Andrew D'Angelo and drummer Jim Black. The performance includes material from the band's critically praised album Meg Nem Sa as well as earlier material composed by Jensson.

The Rudresh Mahanthappa Quartet is the American saxophonist's flagship ensemble, made up of Vijay Iyer on piano, Francois Moutin on bass, and Dan Weiss on drums. Recorded last October, the gig includes music that draws heavily on elements of both Mahanthappa and Iyer's Indian ancestry.
