Banjo legend Bela Fleck teamed up with bassist Edgar Meyer and tabla player Zakir Hussain to produce Melody of Rhythm: Triple Concerto and Music for Trio, performed live with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The album will release on August 25th, and is available for pre-order.
Fleck and Meyer have been working together for over 25 years, including the Grammy award winning Perpetual Motion and Appalachian Journey (with Yo Yo Ma). Hussain has performed on John McLaughlin’s Shakti, Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum, Yo To Ma’s Silk Road Project and others.
Bela Fleck described this performance in a recent Downbeat story, saying it was like “getting together with some brothers he hadn’t seen in some time”.
