Imraan Khan is a New York City-based saxophonist who currently performs with
several different groups spanning jazz, fusion, funk, classic rock, and
Latin genres. A graduate of Long Island University, he has studied with Andy Fusco (of Buddy Rich and
Mel Lewis renown), T.K. Blue, and Richie Iacona. In addition to appearances
with his instructors, Imraan has had the privilege of playing with James
Moody, Darmon Meader, Benny Powell, Jeb Patton, Arturo O’Farrill, Mike
Carubia, Richie Cannata and many more.
Imraan has had the pleasure of appearing at many venues in NYC and abroad,
such as the Lenox Lounge, the American Museum of Natural History, Iridium
and the Zinc Bar, as well as showcases like the Montreaux Jazz Festival in
Geneva, Switzerland and Jazz a Vienne in Juan Les Pins, France. His main
influences include Eric Dolphy, Sonny Stitt, Stan Getz, Maceo Parker, Sonny
Rollins, Billie Holiday, LeRoi Moore, and Paquito D’Rivera.
After exclusively studying mainstream jazz, standards, and quintessential
repertoire, Imraan began composing and arranging, and is currently working
towards the completion of his first album. The album reflects years spent
focused primarily on the study of more popular jazz, yet incorporates fresh
funk and Latin vibes. The album’s release is expected in 2018.
