Four jazz greats who live in New York’s Hudson River Valley have formed a collaboration entitled Hudson. The band features legendary drummer Jack DeJohnette, bassist Larry Grenadier, keyboardist John Medeski and guitarist John Scofield. Hudson will play a series of dates in honor of DeJohnette’s 75th birthday this year and as per Downbeat are expected to release a studio album this summer.
Up first for the quartet is a performance at Miner Auditorium in San Francisco on June 8 ahead of an appearance at the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl on June 10. Hudson will play Boulder’s Chautauqua Park on June 11 and Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs, New York on June 25. The band ends June with concerts in Toronto on the 29th and Montreal on the 30th.
Hudson will then return to the road in October. The foursome plays a home area show in Poughkeepsie, New York on October 4 followed by two nights at Rose Hall in New York City on October 6 and 7. From there, Hudson visits Boston, St. Louis, Overland Park and Calgary ahead of late October shows in Davis and Rohnert Park, California.
