Agrima takes a more open and wide-ranging approach than its predecessor. Abbasi's electric guitar is dirtier and more effects laden, while Weiss adds his drum kit to the tabla. Even Mahanthappa's alto horn has been appended - in places - with electronic effects. On "Showcase," it's multi-tracked and enveloped in reverb, creating a richer timbral and dynamic palette while sounding completely natural. The title track commences with arpeggiatic runs on a synth before Mahanthappa joins in unison

Rudresh Mahanthappa: Agrima by Jerome Wilson, published on October 21, 2017. Besides Mahanthappa the group consists of guitarist Rez Abbasi and drummer/tablaist Dan Weiss, with the occasional bit of electronic enhancement floating in the background. Overall, the music is very tight and forceful. Snap" best displays its general setup: Mahanthappa's alto snakes around wildly in the lead, as Abbasi accompanies him with deep, twangy low-register chords like Gabor Szabo; and Weiss percolates behind on tabla or trap drums.
Agrima is the trio's second album, a step forward in every respect. The clearest update is a broadening of timbre. Where Apti featured a fixed range of instrumental sounds - alto saxophone, tablas, cleanly processed electric guitar - this album gives each musician more of an open canvas. Mahanthappa, whose sound on alto can be mournful or biting, delves into electronics with an expressive subtlety. Hear what he does on the title track. Abbasi employs distortion, back-masking and other effects, unfurling his jazz-rock freak flag.
