Latin Free Jazz Festival- Sameer Khan
Yesterday I went to the Latin Free Jazz Festival, and met an 18 year old bassist and prodigy, Sameer Khan. He was playing with famous saxophonist Ivo Perelman and blew away the audience with his fast fingers, interesting double stops, and aggressive slapping pattern. All while keeping a slight bossa nova groove, just to fulfill the Latin category in the festival name. I have never seen someone so young do this well in a free jazz environment. Kudos, and I cannot wait to hear more.
