Midday Music Playlist for 03/28/2011

Today's noon-hour feature is Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Zakir Hussain's unlikely but wonderful triple concerto for banjo, bass and tablas, The Melody of Rhythm. The threesome bridges the worlds of classical, bluegrass and south Asian music, and they're in Georgia this week, performing in Savannah Wednesday, Athens Friday and Atlanta Saturday.
