Edition Records today released the new album “Good Hope” by the international supergroup of bassist Dave Holland, tabla player Zakir Hussain and saxophonist Chris Potter, under the group name Crosscurrents Trio.
Featuring giants of American and Indian music, Good Hope is an album built on a deep mutual respect, a shared love of the music and a dedication to musical and cultural integration. Masterfully crafted around eight compositions, with contributions from each member of the trio, Good Hope’s brilliance, musical vision and execution is world-class.
Supported by an 18-date tour of Europe, Good Hope is set to inspire and excite audiences with its formidable display of instrumental virtuosity, sophisticated musical language and collective spirit. You can see the complete list of European tour dates here.
Even for these three musicians, who have experienced so much, this is a special collaboration. Dave Holland explains; ‘One of the most rewarding aspects of playing music with a group of improvisers is the spontaneous interaction and dialogue that takes place between the musicians. The traditions of Jazz and Indian music are two of the most highly developed forms of improvisational music and bringing them together creates a rich musical language that expands the creative possibilities of both. This project has been a source of inspiration and growth for all of us in the Crosscurrents Trio. We’re happy to have captured on this recording some of the joy and sense of adventure and risk taking that we feel when we play together.”
