From its beginnings in early 20th-century New Orleans, jazz has been a cross-cultural mashup: a uniquely American mix of African and European sonic traditions. Alto sax player Rudresh Mahanthappa pushes the multicultural mix further by incorporating classical Indian ideas into his propulsive contemporary jazz beats. Mahanthappa, who grew up in Boulder, is playing two nights in support of his GAMAK projecthis most innovative and exploratory work yet. Tue-Wed 6:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m.
