Terrific show. the seats were high up, and if it'd been a play, would've made it hard to follow, but for a music event, were just ifne. Fleck, Meyer and Hussain were amazing. what musicians. seemed to really enjoy playing together.

Description

 Masterful genre-benders and the leading virtuosos on their respective instruments, Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer move with ease among classical, bluegrass and world music. During the 2009/2010 seasons, they’ll join together for the first time in trio concerts of original music. Three of the most limitless creators and composers in the history of music, they share an unprecedented array of projects and pairings among them that touch every geographical and stylistic corner of the musical world.

Béla Fleck has been called the best banjo player in the world and has virtually reinvented the image and sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career.

Zakir Hussain is appreciated both in the field of percussion and in the music world at large as an international phenomenon.

Edgar Meyer is prominently established as a unique and masterful instrumentalist and has an active career as both a performer and a composer.

More than a trio, this is a meeting of musical minds that rivals any supergroup in jazz history.
