Independent / 14 January 2022)
Elements of multiple genres emerge in the intriguing work of Arnab Sengupta, including jazz, blues, world, classical and experimental.
On Leap of Faith, his third album, he's reaching for universal truths along with musical invention.
From the artist:
“For “Leap of Faith” I wanted to try out some new styles and sounds. The creative ideas for the songs in this album have spanned over 5 years, which entailed my migration to Australia, my experiences of setting up life in a new environment, my learning and regular practice of Vipassana meditation and dedicating my musical direction to learning and practicing Jazz piano with my teacher from New York.
“So this album did mark a “Leap of Faith” in many ways. The songs in this album are more versatile and there is a certain stylistic variety which shines through, though the words are still about my pursuit of the final frontier – the ultimate truth and meaning of Life.”
