STG Presents Hudson: Jack Dejohnette, Larry Grenadier, John Medeski, John Scofield at The Moore on October 19, 2017. Presented in partnership with Earshot Jazz Festival.
HUDSON is an all-star group with drummer JACK DEJOHNETTE, bassist LARRY GRENADIER, keyboardist JOHN MEDESKI and guitarist JOHN SCOFIELD. The ensemble takes its name from the Hudson Valley area of New York State, where each of these musicians resides.
The group originally came together in the fall of 2014 to perform at the Woodstock Jazz Festival. “There is a kindred spirit in the Hudson Valley,” says DeJohnette, “and there are many musicians who live in the area who represent a variety of genres. In recent years, we have only been able to collaborate locally on occasion due to our individual musical obligations, but the fact remains that there’s a common language that we all speak – something that emerges from our shared environment.” In 2016, DeJohnette began looking for a project to commemorate his 75th birthday the following year. Fond memories of that performance had him seeking a reunion. In celebration of his milestone year, they'll kick off their North American tour in June 2017, followed by several large festival dates the entire month of October.
With a magical recording in the can slated for release in 2017, all four are keen to share this inspired ensemble with the world. Encouraged by a fiery dynamic chemistry, the album features original compositions as well as collected repertoire of Hudson Valley materials from Bob Dylan's “Lay Lady Lay” and “A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall” to The Band's “Up On Cripple Creek,” the Woodstock Festival's Joni Mitchell anthem and Jimi Hendrix's “Wait Until Tomorrow.”
This is a band with equal parts power and sublimity, pulling several musical genres into one interpretive statement of improvised jazz, punctuated with passion, skill and history.
