Album Notes
"The old cliché 'you can't get there from here' is sonically refuted in Katchie Cartwright and Richard Oppenheim's unique take on Mumbai. Starting in India, traveling through American jazz and the avant-garde and returning to India in new and unexpected ways, A Mumbai of the Mind is not your typical Indo-Jazz fusion album, but rather an unexpected synthesis that is greater than the sum of its parts." - Frank Oteri, NewMusicBox

"An album to savor, a rare, successful gathering of contrasts ... compelling ... Oppenheim's lyrical sax intertwines seductively as his Paul Desmond-like sound seems to always hit the mark." (4 1/2 stars, AMG pick) - Steven Loewy, AllMusic Guide

"Spectacular. I want to listen again and again, it holds so much depth and substance, plus it's fun. ... Something to be said for not playing it safe, as far too many do." - Michael Nastos, WEMU

"A beautifully expressive voice ... a darkly-modulated sax"- AllAboutJazz

Wonderful album
I love this CD. It sounds so fresh and innovative, yet so natural and inevitable, it feels like it's been with me for years. The raga-jazz sax and Indian percussion combined with the improvised but structured feel of the gorgeous vocals are a match made in heaven, or Bombay, or Coney Island.
-- Charlie Lewis, WFMU
