Here's a quote from the Novara Jazz festival Director on Utsav Lal's performance at the Festival:

"Well before contemporary music and radical improvisation,well before jazz was born and developed across Gottschalk and Jarrett, well before our sounds were written or conceived to be emotional, there was a territory of creativity that lead music into outer mental spaces..It was a magic valley where music was like a water flow: the ragas were played with mood and color, with that same illuminating grace that we can hear through the hands of Utsav Lal."
