James Taylor performs a piece written by Nitin Sawhney
Jazz organist James Taylor performs a new work for the Royal Albert Hall organ, with its 9999 pipes, composed by his good friend Nitin Sawhney. James will be performing the entire piece at the hall on Friday 6 May 2011.
Composer and musician Nitin Sawhney and James Taylor were childhood friends who in 1981 went to buy a cheap electronic keyboard together. Three decades later, they're taking on a grander instrument.
