In sanskrit, sangam means confluence. A fitting metaphor for
these three revered improvisers working across cultures and
genres to create a wholly original musical experience. Born as
a tribute to drummer Billy Higgins, who passed in 2001, the
trio has evolved into a fascinating project, built on the complex
rhythmic interplay of Zakir Hussain (tabla) and Eric Harland
(drums), tethered together by the unifying presence of Charles
Lloyd on saxophones, flutes, tarogato, piano and percussion.
Spiritual, playful and undeniably virtuosic, this is music that
reaches for transcendence and rarely falls short of the mark.
