October 30 @ 7 pm - 9 pm
International Super-Group Coming to Ogden!
Crosscurrents led by Grammy Award Winner, Zakir Hussain and 2017 NEA Jazz Master bassist Dave Holland will perform to benefit the Egyptian Theatre Foundation.
Hussain is a living master of the 3,000-year-old tabla percussion tradition and “one of the architects of modern world music.” (NPR) Since the 1960s, he has been a global music ambassador who has formed significant cross-cultural projects and worked with George Harrison, the Grateful Dead and Béla Fleck. Holland is a famously versatile bassist who has led numerous Grammy Award-winning bands and anchored groundbreaking groups led by Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, and Jack DeJohnette.
Crosscurrents’ extraordinary lineup also features globally-celebrated vocalist and Bollywood superstar, Shankar Mahadevan. As well as American saxophonist Chris Potter, called “the most compelling saxophonist of his generation” (Detroit Free Press), plus three of India’s most progressive musicians: guitarist Sanjay Divecha, pianist Louiz Banks, and drummer Gino Banks.
This super-group is the latest representation of the long and vibrant relationship between jazz and Indian classical music, both of which have improvisation as a core tenet. Through distinctive original compositions, Western jazz standards, 12-bar blues numbers, and Indian classical pieces, audiences will witness a cutting-edge development in this cross-cultural continuum.
Price Range $30 – $100.
