Crosscurrents: Zakir Hussain and Dave Holland
Zakir Hussain’s Crosscurrents addresses the intersection of jazz and Indian music.
The acknowledged master of Indian tabla has joined forces with the great jazz bassist, composer and arranger Dave Holland (who got his start with the legendary Miles Davis Bitches Brew group) to form an ensemble that pays tribute to the nexus of two improvisational music forms from opposite sides of the globe. Though many are aware that in the 1960s American jazz performers like John Coltrane studied classical Indian music, few know that in the 1930s and ‘40s, Indian performers began absorbing jazz from Hollywood musicals, which would go on to profoundly influence Bollywood composition. This outstanding band features not only Hussain and Holland but the renowned New York jazz saxophonist Chris Potter and the outstanding Bollywood composer/vocalist Shankar Mahadevan, the great Indian jazz pianist Louiz Banks, his brother Gino on drums, and Sanjay Divecha on guitar.
