Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, Esperanza Spalding & Leo Genovese
April 26 @ 8:00 pm
STG Presents Spring Quartet – Jack DeJohnette · Joe Lovano · Esperanza Spalding · Leo Genovese at The Moore Theatre on April 26, 2019. Presented in association with Earshot Jazz.
The Arts Desk described The Spring Quartet‘s 2014 Barbican performance as, “An expansive, freewheeling rampage, ideas flying out like sparks from a roaring fire, as Spalding, Lovano and Genovese all charmed the room with their gregarious solo work, all held together by DeJohnette’s deliciously light touch.” NEA Master, Grammy Award winner, drummer, and composer Jack DeJohnette knows the multifaceted worlds of jazz and jazz-rock as thoroughly as anyone alive. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the greatest musicians in jazz history,” Grammy Award winning saxophone giant Joe Lovano has distinguished himself as a prescient and path-finding force in the arena of creative music. Esperanza Spalding has always resolutely, intuitively, deftly expanded upon both her art and herself as a world-renowned genre-bending composer, bassist and vocalist. Argentinian pianist Leonardo Genovese has established a solid reputation as an instrumentalist and composer who is not afraid to explore the lesser known corners of the musical landscape.
