Dave Holland, Zakir Hussain, and Chris Potter

Score: 0

Zakir Hussain is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest musicians of our time. A classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order, he gives consistently brilliant and exciting performances that have established him as a national treasure in his own country, India, and as one of India’s reigning cultural ambassadors. Crosscurrents attempt to portray all directions of inspiration between the idioms of jazz and Indian music. The great bassist Dave Holland, a player with one of the most distinguished careers in jazz, brings his singular vision to the quintet. The ensemble pays tribute to pioneering musicians and composers on opposite sides of the world who built a bridge that could be traversed in both directions. The influence of Indian classical music on jazz is widely known. Less known, however, is the influence of jazz on the popular music of India.
