The Spring Quartet Featuring Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, Esperanza Spalding, Leo Genovese Quartet

For Immediate Release

The Spring Quartet Featuring
Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, Esperanza Spalding, Leo Genovese Quartet

Cécile McLorin Salvant opens
Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater on February 28-March 1

New York, NY – January 13, 2014 – To headline this evening’s performance, Jazz at Lincoln Center convenes The Spring Quartet, a cooperative all-star quartet representing three generations, including 2012 NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette on drums; serial poll-winner Joe Lovano on tenor saxophone, tarogato, and aulochrome; 2011 “Best New Artist” GRAMMY® Award winner Esperanza Spalding on bass, and Argentinean born pianist Leo Genovese. They will undoubtedly fulfill DeJohnette’s stated dictum of being “open, prepared for the unexpected, and willing to follow that where it takes us and coming up with something that’s different and also makes sense and communicates.”

Opening the proceedings is the GRAMMY®-nominated recording artist Cécile McLorin Salvant, whose timeless conception of jazz and blues expression spans Bert Williams, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter, and Abbey Lincoln - styles she refracts in her own argot.
