Badal Roy, Amit Chatterjee and Tim Green 

Tabla player Badal Roy is unique among Indian musicians for not having emerged from a family of players, and critics have credited his sui generis training for his uniquely liberated, passionate style. Many American groups (the Beatles come to mind) have used Indian artists to add subcontinental vibes to their sound, but Roy, who moved to the United States in 1968, has been one of few credited with fusing the traditional style with American free jazz and funk. Miles Davis certainly thought so. Roy played tabla with him on several albums, as well as with Pharaoh Sanders, Dizzy Gillespie and as part of Ornette Coleman's Prime Time. Roy is joined by Indian guitarist Amit Chatterjee (pictured) and local sax player Tim Green. Tickets $25. — Alison Fensterstock
