On their Night Dreamer debut, Sarathy Korwar and his allstar "UPAJ Collective" gain brand-new ground in their mission to rebalance spiritual jazz with authentic Indian classical music. "UPAJ" means "to improvise" inHindi, and recording direct-to-disc at Artone Studios with almost no preconceived directions, they truly capture the "spirit of spontaneous improvisation", as Sarathy puts it, like never before.

"Recording in one take, direct-to-disc is a unique scenario to be in. I feel very blessed to be presented this opportunity. I decided very early on that in order to make the best use of this scenario, the music had to be completely improvised and spontaneous. That is the only true way to record within the limitations of one take. No regrets, no mistakes, no fear and no judgement. These were the ideals. In a way, this was about creating a utopian vision of a world I would like to live in. A microcosm of the ideals that I would like to live by, in the recording studio. The vision of going into the studio with this in mind, was more important than the resulting music we created. Process over product. ... Thank you to the gifted musicians — Al, Tamar, Achuthan and Giuliano for trusting and letting go. I am lucky to spend time with you." — Sarathy Korwar 2020
