About Me

Kaelen Ghandhi is a New York based improviser, saxophonist, composer, and educator with a Jazz Performance degree from The New School. While his main instrument is tenor saxophone, he is also proficient in flute, clarinet, and alto, soprano and baritone saxophones.

His playing and compositional style derives inspiration from both improvised music and modern jazz. Having studied extensively with artists like Tony Malaby, Joe Morris, and Andrew Cyrille as well as Seamus Blake, Joel Frahm, and Chris Cheek, his music is forward thinking and bridges multiple styles.

Recent projects include a West coast tour (Summer 2018) and concerts in the tri-state area with Aaron Rubinstein and Kevin Murray in the improvising trio Ghandhi/Murray/Rubinstein. He has performance experience with William Parker and Michael Larocca.
