HUDSON: Jack DeJohnette • Larry Grenadier • John Medeski • John Scofield

Exclusive NYC Performance, October 6–7, Rose Theater

New York, NY (September 12, 2017) – Jazz at Lincoln Center presents HUDSON, a new quartet of jazz luminaries, featuring drummer Jack DeJohnette, bassist Larry Grenadier, keyboardist John Medeski, and guitarist John Scofield, each a distinctive and famously adaptive improviser. The group will make its only New York City appearance on the Rose Theater stage, October 6 and 7 at 8pm. Following the successful release in June of its self-titled debut album named after the Hudson Valley the group calls home, HUDSON will perform an eclectic repertoire reflective of the region’s musical history – ranging from new, original compositions to unexpected, highly interactive interpretations of classics by Bob Dylan, The Band, Joni Mitchell, and Jimi Hendrix.

Of the group’s recent debut album, NPR noted that it gives “familiar fare an unexpected new tilt, making original tunes feel durable and broken-in. The group is a confab of four master improvisers who never hesitate to lay down a groove, with DeJohnette, who turns 75 this summer, setting the bar.” The repertoire highlights the truly universal character of jazz. Each member performs the dual role of explosive long-form improviser and responsive rhythm player, highlighting the virtuosity and collaborative instincts that have earned these artists such enduring renown and popularity.

HUDSON: Jack DeJohnette · Larry Grenadier · John Medeski · John Scofield will take place in Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Frederick P.Rose Hall, located at Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit jazz.org.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017–18 season celebrates the organization’s 30th anniversary.

Jazz at Lincoln Center was established as an independent non-profit organization in 1996; opened Frederick P. Rose Hall, the “House of Swing”, in 2004, making it the world’s first venue designed specifically for jazz; and launched Blue Engine Records in 2014 to share its vast archive of recordings. Over the past three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center has become an important advocate for jazz, culture, and arts education globally, reaching an audience of nearly 2 million people of all ages and experiences through concerts, webcasting, musical instruction, and distribution of music scores—the vast majority of which is free of charge. To date, Jazz at Lincoln Center has produced more than 1,200 original concerts in the New York City area, with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra having performed in over 446 cities in 41 countries on five continents. This milestone season reflects on 30 years of celebrating the universal language of music and the influence of jazz in the present day. Throughout the 2017–18 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center will bring together a wide array of events, projects, virtuoso musicians, composers, and educators to illustrate the collaborative nature of the art form. Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017–18 season features performances by renowned artists including Joey Alexander, Chick Corea, Paquito D’Rivera, Eliane Elias, Ellis Marsalis, Dick Hyman, Marilyn Maye, Steve Miller, and Dianne Reeves; as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center debuts by the Harlem Quartet and vocalist and songwriter Somi.
