Jam through vintage years of 'Live Nights at Wink' at Taj President Mumbai

MUMBAI: Taj is known as the Bombay birthplace of jazz; Leon Abbey is credited with bringing swing to Bombay in the 1930s, and of course, he was a guest of the Taj. Along with him, Duke Ellington and Creighton Thompson were regulars – delighting the audiences with their big-band performances.

On 17 August, Vivanta by Taj – President, Mumbai will take on that Taj jazz mantle in its new weekly jam session Live Nights at Wink from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. Just as the freewheeling sound of big-band dance music would drum through the Taj ballroom of the 1920s, Wink will play host to an improve foursome that will bring together jazz standards with swing, funk, rock, blues, soul and R&B to get people hopping to the beat.

Multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer, D. Wood on the bass guitar; the talented keyboard player and pianist Rahul Wadhwani; award-winning guitarist, arranger and composer, Adil Manuel on the electric guitar; and the multi-faceted music enthusiast Sudhir Nagpal on the drums, will take guests on a jazz journey. They will be joined by well-known local and international musicians to jam together, to deepen the beats and change the mood with each different set.

Live Nights at Wink is the ideal Thursday night unwind with meandering melodies and signature cocktails to set your weekend mood.

So enjoy the host of classical cocktails as you journey through the vintage years of jazz, funk, rock, blues, soul and RnB.
