WATCH: Zakir Hussain's Rhythm Summit
Season 1 at the SFJAZZ Center has seen many once-in-a-lifetime collaborations and some daring performances that push the envelope, as witnessed during last week's Jason Moran residency. As we begin to approach the last remaining weeks of our inaugural season here at the SFJAZZ Center, it's always enjoyable to look back at some of the season's most memorable moments.
Arguably one of the most incredible week's we had this season, took place during Zakir Hussain's residency, which featured four very unique and brilliantly original performances. The video above is a short excerpt taken during the opening night of his residency back in March when the table virtuoso shared the stage with three other great percussionists in Giovanni Hidalgo, Eric Harland and Steve Smith. A truly impressive performance!
