Sachal Vasandani

Dec. 11 Sachal Vasandani Holland Center 1200 Club, 1200 Douglas St. 8 p.m., $25 ADV/$30 DOS 345.0606, omahaperformingarts.org Diversity is the downbeat of this jazz vocalist and songwriter who grew up in a Chicago household where a variety of music was played, including a wide range of jazz. After getting himself noticed as a budding talent at the University of Michigan, Sachal Vasandani moved to New York, immersing himself into the jazz scene by gigging at the Zinc Bar and performing with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Eric Reed, T.S. Monk and many others. About his eclectic repertoire, he says, “My music always starts off with jazz but can end up in any number of places because of all my different influences. I guess I value the freedom to explore as much as the discipline of tradition.” In the Holland’s lounge-like Scott Recital Hall the suave, dashing Vasandani is sure to enchant.
