Saxophonist and composer Phil Scarff (www.philscarff.com) performs Indian classical music and contemporary jazz, and leads the world-jazz groups Natraj and the Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group. Phil pioneers the performance of North Indian classical music on soprano saxophone, exquisitely capturing the subtlety and depth of this music. His performance at India's legendary Tansen Samaroh, Gwalior, India, with Saskia Rao de Haas was "The highlight of the festival." [Dainik Bhaskar]. Indian classical appearances also include India's Nehru Center (Mumbai); Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture (Kolkata); and ICCR Theater (Delhi). Phil has presented workshops on jazz, Indian classical music, and world music at institutions such as New England Conservatory, Indian Musicological Society (Mumbai), Berklee College, Tufts Univ., Kalakshetra Foundation (Chennai, India), Univ. of North TX, Univ. of OK, Lawrence Univ., Bowdoin College, Dartmouth College, Guelph Jazz Festival, Univ. of RI, MIT, LearnQuest Festival, Boston Univ., and Berks Jazz Fest.
