‘An ensemble of veteran Pakistani musicians has pulled out an unlikely coup-storming western charts with an innovative jazz album and prompting comparisons with Buena Vista Social Club’s rediscovery of a lost generation of Cuban Musicians.’ Guardian

Global YouTube and iTunes charting- topping sensation Sachal Jazz present an exclusive concert with the Strings of the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO). Combining western instruments with sitar, sarod, tabla and dholak, the Lahore-based Pakistani ensemble breathes new life into well known bossa nova and jazz standards including 'The Girl from Ipanema', 'Desafinado (Slightly out of Tune)' and Dave Brubeck’s legendary 'Take Five', which he said was, ‘the most interesting and different recording of Take Five that I’ve heard.’

Dedicated to his memory, the latest album Jazz And All That showcases the best of East meets West, and includes jazz standards that can’t fail to delight.
