THE SPRING QUARTET: JACK DEJOHNETTE, JOE LOVANO, ESPERANZA SPALDING AND LEO GENOVESE

Sat, April 27, 8:00 PM at the Ford Theatre
 

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 and 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.

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.”

This event is part of IGNITE @ the FORD!, a series comprised of world-renowned contemporary artists whose work is thought-provoking and reflects the world in which we live. Proceeds benefit the Ford Theatre Foundation.
