Three generations of jazz greats combine for an incredible instrumental evening. One of the most respected drummers on the planet, NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette has been in constant demand as both a bandleader and sideman for over five decades. Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the greatest musicians in jazz history,” Grammy-winning saxophone giant Joe Lovano is a prescient and path-finding force in the arena of creative music. Bassist/composer Esperanza Spalding was one of the biggest breakout stars of 2011—not just in jazz, but in all genres of music, receiving a Grammy for Best New Artist. The all-star frontline is rounded out by the amazing Argentinean pianist Leo Genovese, a long-time cohort of Spalding. To have these musicians together is a spectacle in itself.
