Saxophone player Rudresh Mahanthappa, on his record, "Samdhi," merges electronica, Carnatic (south Indian) music, funk and jazz grooves. We'll hear some of Mahanthappa's tunes, along with other purveyors of this kind of "alleged" jazz, which incorporates digital processing, hiphop beats, or electronica. There's music from guitarist Rez Abbasi and pianist Matthew Shipp, and many others.
