One of the most promising young guitar players in jazz in India, Jishnu Dasgupta brings a contemporary, adventurous sound to compositions jazz musicians have been playing for more than 60 years. His accessible yet intense style of jazz guitar improvisation, fluid lyricism and ability to expand the given harmonic structure of how to play a jazz standard results in a jazz guitar style that takes hard-bop chromatic phrasing and turns it on its head. Jishnu got his start as a young jazz guitarist in Bangalore, cutting his teeth playing bebop jazz with Indian music scene veteran Tony Das. Since then he has performed with a number of jazz musicians in India. As a jazz guitar teacher, one of Jishnu's significant recent contributions to the online community of jazz guitarists has been his adaptation of classical Hanon etudes into an improvisational language and format suitable for jazz guitar improvisation.
