Healdsburg Jazz presents the world premiere of Charles Lloyd, Zakir Hussain and Julian Lage playing together as a trio for the first time, to be streamed live around the world. Each musician will be driving to the intimate wine country town in Northern California for this extraordinary real-time live show. Saxophonist/flautist Charles is heading up from Santa Barbara, tabla-master Zakir from Marin County, and guitarist Julian all the way from Nashville, Tenn.
The group will play together in a safe, socially distanced fashion without an in-person audience from the Paul Mahder Gallery, captured by state-of-the-art sound and video equipment and beamed to a worldwide audience. For a minimum $15 donation, viewers will have 72-hour access to the concert after the live performance, which starts at 7 PM PT (Pacific Time).
The coronavirus pandemic may have shut down the Healdsburg Jazz Festival this summer, but jazz fans around these parts should know by now, after 22 years of festivals, that Founder and Artistic Director Jessica Felix is capable of pulling a rabbit out of her hat. And so she has again with this superstar trio. It will be her last concert as Artistic Director of the festival, as she is retiring on Sept. 30.
