George Brooks' Summit @ Yoshi's

Always my favourite venue for jazz in the Bay Area, Yoshi's had George Brooks' Summit performing last night. The group consists of George Brooks (saxophone), Fareed Haque (guitar), Kai Eckhardt (bass), Steve Smith (drums), and the much loved Zakir Hussein (tabla).

Stellar performances all round, but the highlight of the evening was the percussion solos by Zakir and Steve. I've attended several concerts featuring Zakir Hussein, but this was my first with Steve Smith. He's really impressive, and not just because he could hold his own against the tabla master.

Great way to close off our vacation :)
