“one of the best ever to touch a kit” – The Boston Globe on Jack DeJohnette

DeJohnette_Lovano_Spalding_Genovese_Promo_Image-1359500671NEA Jazz Master and Grammy Award-winner Jack DeJohnette is one of the most influential jazz drummers of the 20th century. In his 50-year career, DeJohnette has collaborated with iconic figures in modern jazz, including Miles Davis, Joe Henderson and Sonny Rollins.

Saxophone giant Joe Lovano—“one of the greatest musicians in jazz history” (The New York Times)—has distinguished himself as a prophetic force in creative music, with 23 recordings on the famed Blue Note Record label.

Young bassist/vocalist/composer Esperanza Spalding was one of the biggest breakout stars of 2011. Her receipt of the 2011 Grammy for Best New Artist was the first time a jazz musician had ever won the award.

The all-star frontline is rounded out by amazing Argentinean pianist Leo Genovese, Esperanza’s long-time cohort. This collaboration promises to be one of the most spectacular nights of the season.
