Radha Thomas & Aman Mahajan are reviewed by Jazzweekly with Bangalore Blues


Radha Thomas & Aman Mahajan: Bangalore Blues







Intimate duets by vocalist/composer  Radha Thomas and keyboardist/pianist  Aman Mahajan are created on this collection of seven thoughtful musings. Thomas’ voice possesses  an alluring and secretive whisper, as if she’s letting you in on a secret, sounding like a vagabond on the title track or delivering observations on “Letimotif”. Mahajan gets blue on “Load Shedding” and the two go soulful on the hip “Would I Lie” while personal poetry not  unlike Billy Joel are purveyed on “The Morning After” and sincere “Jailer”. A throwback to vintage days of 70s singer/songwriters, Thomas comes across like an Indian version of Kenny Rankin, bringing jazzy bohemia to the fore. Worth seeking out.
