“’Beyond category.’ That's what Duke Ellington used to call musicians who were simply the best at what they do. And that's certainly the case for Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Zakir Hussain” (NPR Music). A harmonic convergence of virtuosity, the trio of tabla master Hussain, banjoist Fleck, and bassist Meyer reunite on the Miner stage to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their GRAMMY-nominated 2009 album The Melody of Rhythm – Triple Concerto & Music for Trio.

Hussain is the world’s most celebrated tabla player, a living legend whose intrepid collaborations with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, John McLaughlin and Mickey Hart have opened up new musical realms and crossed innumerable cultural borders. He received the SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017. Steeped in jazz, funk and bluegrass, banjo star Béla Fleck explores everything from Bach to West African griot incantations when not touring with his hugely popular Flecktones or with his wife, clawhammer banjo master Abigail Washburn. Fleck is a 14-time GRAMMY winner, most recently for his 2014 collaboration with Washburn, Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn. A five-time GRAMMY winner, Meyer is a bass visionary who has continually expanded the range of his instrument, bridging worlds of classical music, bluegrass, folk, and jazz. He is a 2000 winner of the Avery Fisher Prize and a recipient of a 2002 MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant.”

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

A new kind of improvising jazz trio that can work from a set composition and travel far and wide in sound, texture, and color.
