In an era where emerging instrumental artists often seek success by copycatting the greats or watering down their deeper passions to fit in the mainstream, Reza Khan stands out as a true musical citizen of the world, delightfully transcending easy genre trappings with his freewheeling blend of infectious pop, jazz and global influences. Even after three well received indie recordings that hit the Jazz Albums charts - Painted Diaries (2008), A Simple Plan (2011) and The Dreamwalker (2013) - the Bangladesh born and raised, NYC based composer/guitarist is still delightfully straddling the classical Indian and Bengali music of his youth with contemporary funk grooves and the free form energetic sounds of Western rock and jazz fusion.

Boldly admitting, despite his success and growing popularity and airplay, that he "still doesn't know where I fit in," Khan's inspiring journey of self-discovery continues with the alternately intimate and explosive new full length album Wind Dance. Its opening track and lead single "Ride" features a high energy, electric guitar and sax driven rock fusion sound reminiscent of The Rippingtons. Carrying the listener along through a series of colorful moods throughout the collection's 14 tracks, Khan creates the perfect counterpoint to this track with the dreamy and reflective easy swaying tune "Ride Home."

Over the past few years, as Khan has built a loyal East Coast fan base and performed at NYC hotspots like BB Kings, Drom and Zinc Bar, he has attracted the attention of numerous contemporary jazz heavy hitters eager to help him develop his vision. His recordings have featured contributions from saxophonist Andy Snitzer (who provides emotional thrust on "Ride"), trumpeter Rick Braun, Pat Metheny bassist Mark Egan, Acoustic Alchemy's Miles Gilderdale, sax/flutist Nelson Rangell and keyboardist Philippe Saisse. Wind Dance includes dynamic interaction with all of those performers, in addition to Marc Antoine, whose snappy, playful flamenco guitar joins with Rangell's spirited flute harmonies and Saisse's whimsical piano and synth improvisations to create soulfully exotic magic on "Villa Rosa."
