The album's six tracks were written especially for the exceptional band of drummer Eric Harland, guitarist Charles Altura, Joel Ross on vibraphone and marimba, and Morgan Guerin on woodwinds. Raghavan has forged an impressive reputation through his work with the likes of Ambrose Akinmusire, Kurt Elling, Taylor Eigsti, Vijay Iyer, Charles Lloyd, Walter Smith III, Logan Richardson and Eric Harland; and is widely lauded for his work as leader.
Inspiration for this new album came from responding to the monumental events of that year, particularly the globally shared experience of the pandemic.
Harish Raghavan is a thoughtful composer and enigmatic musician, 'In Tense' is a commanding and immersive oeuvre that enchants from start to finish. Harish says: "the album is called In Tense and for me that means trying to stay present and in the moment."
This record offers that mindful clarity through its captivating compositions and hypnotizing intensity.
