In the vibrant landscape of modern music, these four performers are powerful ambassadors of not only jazz alone, but of intersecting and evolving forms that reverberate across musical languages. They come together for a very special quartet configuration that showcases their shared artistic depth and individual breadth of influence.
One of the most respected drummers in the world, National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette is capable of playing in any style while maintaining a well-defined voice, keeping him in constant demand as a player, bandleader, and sideman for over five decades.
Grammy award winning saxophone giant Joe Lovano has distinguished himself as a prescient and path-finding force in the arena of creative music.
Young bassist/vocalist/composer Esperanza Spalding received the 2011 Grammy for Best New Artist – becoming a trailblazer as the first jazz musician in history to win that award.
The all-star frontline is rounded out by the amazing Argentine pianist Leo Genovese.
