Sachal Vasandani, voice Taylor Eigsti, piano Josh Ginsburg, bass Jeremy Dutton, drums Sachal Vasandani’s singing is steeped with understated power. On Shadow Train, his brand new album, Sachal’s performance shows that he is far more than the traditional, masculine romantic; Sachal has a fierce respect for the woman he is serenading. Shadow Train’s curated collection of choice themes and songwriters, including the revolutionary musician Abbey Lincoln’s “ThrowitAway,” highlight this: Sachal’s performance is equal parts virility and empathy. Shadow Train is a showcase of phenomenal musicianship. Never stifled by tradition, Jeremy Dutton (drums), Taylor Eigsti (piano), Nir Felder (guitar) and Josh Ginsberg (bass), focus their collective energy to highlight these themes with an open spirit. Sachal and the ensemble weave romance and respect throughout the record, seducing and enlightening listeners at the same time.
