You may remember me gushing recently about how much I enjoyed the Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Zakir Hussain set while I was at High Sierra; easily some of the best music I heard all weekend.
“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 Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Zakir Hussain. Individually, they’re world-class masters of the banjo, the bass fiddle and the tabla, respectively. They conquered mere technical prowess long ago.
