  • Zakir Hussain and Dave Holland: Crosscurrents | JAZZ NIGHT IN AMERICA

    1:56:00

    Tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain, prolific bassist Dave Holland and their international ensemble perform together as Crosscurrents, a musical exploration of the influence of Indian music on the jazz and rock scenes of the '60s.

    Hear the radio episode:

    —————————————————————

    by NATE CHINEN

    Virtuosity — of a dazzling, ebullient, yet altogether generous sort — might be the most obvious bridge between David Holland and Zakir Hussain. But there's also a deep cultural foundation behind their musical dialogue, which forms the beating heart of a project called Crosscurrents.

    Hussain, a peerless master of the Indian tabla, and Holland, an English-born bassist of sterling jazz renown, were both shaped in some way by the 1960s, a decade of awakening and convergence. In this episode of Jazz Night in America, we'll explore the influence of Indian music on the jazz and rock scenes of that era — as well as the less familiar story of jazz's influence on the subcontinent, embodied by musicians like pianist and composer Louiz Banks.

    We'll hear music from a recent Jazz at Lincoln Center concert led by Hussain and Holland. Crosscurrents also features Banks, his son, drummer Gino Banks, along with acclaimed American saxophonist and flutist Chris Potter, Bollywood vocal star Shankar Mahadevan and Mumbai-based jazz guitarist Sanjay Divecha. We'll also get some valuable outside perspective from percussionist Sameer Gupta and other musicians in Brooklyn Raga Massive, which pursues a similar form of thrumming exchange.

    1:3:18

    [English info below] ZAKIR HUSSAIN to jedna z niekwestionowanych legend world music, wirtuoz gry na tabli, artysta koncertujący i nagrywający z największymi sławami, również scen jazzowych.
    Jego ojcem był słynny muzyk Ustad Alla Rakha. Dzięki ojcu Zakir uczył się gry na instrumentach od najwcześniejszego dzieciństwa. Występował już jako kilkunastolatek. W wieku dziewiętnastu lat po raz pierwszy wyjechał do Stanów Zjednoczonych, koncertując u boku Raviego Shankara.
    Publiczność pamięta doskonale wybitne płyty Hussaina, z albumem „Making Music” nagranym dla słynnej wytwórni ECM na czele. Krążek ten bywa uznawany za jedną z najwspanialszych muzycznych fuzji Wschodu i Zachodu. Partnerami lidera byli tam John McLaughlin, Jan Garbarek i legendarny Hariprasad Chaurasia – wuj Rakesha, którego usłyszymy w Krakowie.
    Z Johnem McLaughlinem Hussain współpracował wielokrotnie, m.in. współtworząc świetne nagrania jego grup Shakti i Remember Shakti. Z kolei wspólnie z Billem Laswellem prowadził grupę Tabla Beat Science, gromadzącą wybitnych tablistów i perkusjonistów. Współtworzył też znakomite projekty Planete Drum i Global Drum. Współpracował z największymi – od George’a Harrisona i Vana Morrisona po Pharoaha Sandersa i Charlesa Lloyda. Sam jest dziś żywą legendą muzyki.
    RAKESH CHAURASIA jest nie tylko bratankiem, ale też jednym z najbardziej utalentowanych uczniów Hariprasada Chaurasii. Gra na bansouri, tradycyjnym hinduskim flecie bambusowym. Ma za sobą współpracę m.in. ze słynnym Talvinem Singhiem. Brał udział w nagraniu kilkudziesięciu albumów. Prowadzi m.in. grupę RAF, czyli Rakesh and Frieds.
    Koncert odbył się w Sali Audytoryjnej ICE Kraków 8 lipca 2015.

    ZAKIR HUSSAIN is undoubtedly one of the greatest legends of world music, virtuoso of the tabla, and artist who tours and
    records with many other acclaimed musicians, including those form the world of jazz.
    His father was the famous musician Ustad Alla Rakha. Thanks to his father, Zakir learned to play musical instruments from his youngest days. He started performing as a teenager, and when he was 19 years old, he travelled to the US for the first time, appearing alongside Ravi Shankar.
    Audiences remember Hussain’s acclaimed albums, especially “Making Music” recorded for the famous ECM label. It is regarded as one of the finest musical fusions of the East and the West. Hussain was accompanied by John McLaughlin, Jan Garbarek and the legendary Hariprasad Chaurasia – uncle of Rakesh, who joins Hussain in Kraków.
    Hussain has worked with McLaughlin many times, for example when creating recordings with his groups Shakti and Remember Shakti. He also worked alongside Bill Laswell, leading the group Tabla Beat Science bringing together acclaimed tablists and percussionists. He has also co-created the outstanding projects Planete Drum and Global Drum, and worked with some of the greatest musicians of all time, from George Harrison and Van Morrison to Pharoah Sanders and Charles Lloyd. He is a living legend himself.
    RAKESH CHAURASIA is more than just a nephew of Hariprasad Chaurasia – he is also one of his most talented pupils. He plays the bansouri, a traditional South Asian bamboo flute. He has worked with musicians including Talvin Singh, participated in recording dozens of albums, and he leads the RAF ensemble – Rakesh and Friends.
    Recorded at ICE Kraków 08.07.2015.

    Moonlight moments - in concert with the extraordinary maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain! The raga, Chandranandan, is one of the most magnificent creations of the legendary Ustad Ali Akbar Khansahib and celebrates the beauty of the moon. This is an excerpt from a performance in Switzerland in the early 1990's.

    I have been very fortunate to receive so much help and guidance during almost 50 years of studying Indian Classical Music. Not only did my guru, Ustad Ali Akbar Khansahib, tirelessly share his ocean of knowledge with all his disciples, but other maestros who also taught at his College, like Ustad Zakir Hussain and Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, were like elder brothers to me and were incredibly generous with their encouragement and support. I have also been very lucky to be able to perform with them many times over the years, which has always been both inspiring and instructive. I will always cherish and be grateful for all their guidance and love.

    I had the great honor of performing with Zakir and Ashish early in their careers in what you might call a raga/rock musical group. With no hit records, the group remains in obscurity. But a small bit of footage has survived showing a truly unique marriage of rock and India classical musicianship. There was a lot of excitement around the group at that time. It's unfortunate none of us could write hit songs! It was an honor working with these guys, especially the very nimble, and humble, Zakir. He was 21 at the time and was already a world-class musician, as was Ashish. Watch at least after the first minute, their technical ability is worth seeing, even if you have no interest in this type of music.

    Was fortunate enough to see Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain & Edgar Meyer perform live at the Egg, Albany yesterday. The table maestro held audiences spellbound with his compositions.
    This was the final piece they played. I secretly recorded it, untill I was stopped by the security !! Lucky that they did not confiscate my Cam !!
