A ROOM WITH A VIEW



Shubh’s debut EP entitled A Room with a View (released May 20, 2014) is a collection of pieces written over the span of a year. Incorporating elements from modern jazz, soul and Indian music, each piece showcases the kaleidoscopic range of motifs and textures that defines Shubh’s compositional style.

"His approach is reminiscent of Marcus Miller's approach to jazz-- cool, amiable, groove-oriented. Saran's debut EP, A Room With a View isn't riddled with over-complicated compositions and intellectual noodling. There's a simple, straightforward goodness to these songs that are a pleasure to hear. His intermingling of his Indian heritage with modern jazz sounds show great skill without insisting upon itself." -NextBop
