Celebrity Series The Spring Quartet: Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, Esperanza Spalding, and Leo Genovese
DeJohnette, an NEA Master, Grammy Award winner, drummer, and composer, knows the multifaceted worlds of jazz and jazz/rock as thoroughly as anyone. Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the greatest musicians in jazz history,” Grammy-winning saxophonist Lovano has distinguished himself as a prescient force in creative music. Spalding has always resolutely, intuitively, and deftly expanded upon her art and herself as a world-renowned, genre-bending composer, bassist, and vocalist. Argentinian pianist Genovese has established a solid reputation as an instrumentalist and composer who is unafraid to explore lesser-known corners of the musical landscape.
The Spring Quartet made its spectacular Celebrity Series debut in 2014.
