“Zakir Hussain, a living genius” (NY Times); “Holland is a master bassist and bandleader” (Boston Globe); “[Potter is] one of the most dynamic young players in jazz.” (Chicago Tribune)

TWO SHOWS: 7/9:30pm

Three of the most influential musicians of the last five decades meet for this only-at-SFJAZZ collaboration, further exploring the near-telepathic connection they developed during Hussain’s Crosscurrents performance in Season 5.

“A master bassist and bandleader,” (Boston Globe), Dave Holland has inhabited the music’s adventurous edge ever since Miles Davis hired him to anchor his band in 1968. Nearly 40 albums as a leader and collaborations with Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Kenny Wheeler and dozens more have made him among the most versatile and prolific bassist/composers in jazz history. “One of the most studied (and copied) saxophonists on the planet,” (DownBeat) Chris Potter began his musical journey in the late 1980s, laying the foundation for his current position as a leading light in jazz in which he has shared the studio and bandstand with a staggering list of major artists including Pat Metheny, Paul Motian, Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Steely Dan and the Mingus Big Band. Since arriving in the Bay Area in 1970 as a celebrated teenage prodigy trained by his legendary father Alla Rakha, Zakir Hussain has played an essential role bringing the rhythmic sophistication of North Indian classical music into a diverse array of settings. A “living genius” (NY Times), pioneer of world music and Indo-jazz fusion, he’s blazed a mind-boggling array of musical trails.
