Collaborating with the banjoist on Perpetual Motion was his longtime friend and colleague Edgar Meyer, a bassist whose virtuosity defies labels and who is also an acclaimed composer. Fleck and Meyer co-wrote and performed a double concerto for banjo, bass and orchestra, which they debuted with the Nashville Symphony in November 2003. They also co-wrote a triple concerto for banjo, bass and tabla – titled The Melody of Rhythm – with world-renowned tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain.
