Carlton Kitto Quartet Performance - 16th Oct 2012

Carlton Kitto Quartet LIVE
Performance at Opus (Palace Cross Road) on Tuesday 16th October, 9:30pm

Carlton Kitto, jazz maestro from Kolkata, is among the few bebop jazz guitarists in the country and currently plays at the Oberoi Grand in Kolkata. Referred to as the uncrowned king of Indian jazz, Kitto has played with American jazz legends like Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie and Kenny Clarke. It is through Kitto's story that the narrative of Susheel Kurien's film "Finding Carlton - Uncovering the Story of Jazz in India" unfolds.

Carlton Kitto and his quartet will perform live for the first time at Opus after the screening of the film.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Gina Forever Foundation™
