Rhythm: Zakir Hussain/Giovanni Hidalgo/Eric Harland/Steve Smith at SFJAZZ Center
Rhythm is a genre-bending percussion showcase featuring Giovanni Hidalgo, Eric Harland, and Steve Smith, drum giants with whom he shares deep ties. Hussain and Hidalgo, the revered Puerto Rican conguero, started collaborating two decades ago in Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum, and Hussain toured and recorded with Harland in Charles Lloyd’s spiritually charged trio Sangam. The tabla genius has a history with ex-Journey drummer Smith in Summit, the innovative Indo-jazz ensemble led by Berkeley saxophonist George Brooks. Together, it adds up to an incredible evening of drumming firepower.
