Sachal Vasandani (Raj Naik)

Sachal Vasandani
"Summer No School"
Playing on Tuesday at Jazz Standard
(116 E. 27th St., Gramercy)
Get: Tickets ($25) | Directions

Although New York-based jazz crooner Sachal Vasandani is still a relative newcomer to the jazz world — he released his first recording just three years ago — the young singer's lean, velvet voice recalls jazz great Nat King Cole. His musical lineage traces back a couple generations to New Delhi, where his grandfather was a singer of classical Indian music.

On Tuesday night, Vasandani starts a three-night residency at the Jazz Standard. Download his single “Summer No School,” from his sophomore album Hi-Fly above. In the video below, Vasandani performs Amy Winehouse’s “Love Is A Losing Game."
