On Shadow Train, Sachal Vasandani's brand new album, the singer's performance shows that he is far more than the traditional, masculine romantic; Sachal has a fierce respect for the woman he is serenading. Shadow Train’s curated collection of choice themes and songwriters, including the revolutionary musician Abbey Lincoln’s “Throw it Away,” highlight this and establishes he is equal parts virility and empathy. Shadow Train is a showcase of phenomenal musicianship. Never stifled by their command of tradition, Eric Harland (drums), Taylor Eigsti (piano), Nir Felder (guitar), Dayna Stephens (sax), and Reuben Rogers (bass), focus their collective energy to highlight these themes with an open spirit.
Sachal and the ensemble weave romance and respect throughout the record, seducing and enlightening listeners at the same time.
