George Brooks Trio

Wednesday, August 1, 7:30, Rendon Hall at California Jazz Conservatory

George Brooks and long-time collaborators, bassist Kai Eckhardt and pianist Frank Martin, perform an evening of new compositions and favorites from Brooks’s extensive catalog.

George Brooks is a saxophonist and composer, acclaimed for successfully bridging the worlds of jazz and Indian classical music, founding seminal Indian fusion groups like Summit with Zakir Hussain, and Bombay Jazz with Ronu Majumdar and Larry Coryell, and the Raga Bop Trio with Steve Smith and Prasanna. Kai Eckhardt appears on Brooks’ Summit and Spirit and Spice recordings and has performed with Brooks, Steve Smith and Zakir Hussain in the US, Europe and Asia. Northern California native Frank Martin is the pianist on George Brooks’, Spirit and Spice recording and has performed with Brooks throughout the Bay Area. He has performed with an incredible range of artists, from Lady Gaga to Stevie Wonder.
