Mumbai 19th June 2019: Louiz Banks is India's pre-eminent Jazz Pianist, Composer, Film and Record Producer. He is also a Grammy nominee and fondly called the 'Godfather of Indian Jazz'. 'Transcendence' is an annual event, that pays tribute to Legends of Indian & Western Jazz Music. This year’s Transcendence 2.0 saw two modern day Indian legends, Grammy nominee Louiz Banks-Piano and Dr. Mysore Manjunath-Violin pay tribute to their respective idols Jazz legend Oscar Peterson and Carnatic legend T. Chowdiah. The concert featuring the music of the 'Vidwan of the Violin', fusing with the artistry of the 'Maharaja of the Piano', proved to be a stupendous success

Louiz Banks and Dr. Mysore Manjunath-Violin were accompanied by Gianluca Liberatore-Bass Guitar, Vidwan Bangalore Amrit-Khanjira, Gino Banks-Drums and Pt. Yogesh Samsi-Tabla and together they took the audience to a heightened level of consciousness with their music, culminating in a joyous transcendent state.
.
Louiz Banks picked Oscar Peterson, in his words 'The answer to that question will cover a few volumes ... but in short... because Oscar Peterson is unanimously acknowledged as one of the greatest exponents of Jazz Piano..and he continues to inspire all students of Jazz Piano. My own switch to Jazz Piano took place when my father introduced me to Oscar Peterson... that was the turning point in my musical studies and pursuits. Hence I pay homage to the greatness of Oscar Peterson"

The first segment of the concert began with the lovely tribute by Louiz Banks to Oscar Peterson with some good old instrumental jazz popularized by him. The second segment of the concert began with tribute by Vidwan Shri. Dr. Mysore Manjunathji to T.Chowdiah with the traditional Tyagaraja Kriti ‘Nyanamu Sakaratha’ in Purvikalyani. The finale was specially composed by Louiz Banks called ‘Reunion’ loosely based on Raga Chandrakauns. The finale also had Gino Banks, Pt.Yogesh Samsi and Vidwan Bangalore Amrit, showing their respective class and talent separately and then sparring amiably with each other on their instruments. Pradeep Joseph from Raga to Rock said 'the concert was like sitting at the crossroads, where the Music of Chennai and New Orleans met'.
