Butman, whom the former US president Bill Clinton called his favourite living saxophonist, is also a television host and a bandleader. Butman is not new to India. The country , for the multi-talented musician is a place fascinates him.

“India has a unique taste in music that is very representative of the people and their preferences. It is quite interesting,” he says. His fans in Mumbai have previously witnessed his performance in 2014 at National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) and in 2015 at the Jus’ Jazz concert.

“Each time I have been to India to perform, I have always been graced with a great audience and ambience.
