Hudson: Scofield, Medeski, DeJohnette & Grenadier – June 11

Drummer Jack DeJohnette, bassist Larry Grenadier, keyboardist John Medeski, and guitarist John Scofield team up to celebrate their musical histories in a tour de force of creative interplay.

It’s rare that so impressive a group of individuals finds time away from their own projects to tour together. Join us for a one-time-only performance as they combine their creative genius for an unforgettable Chautauqua performance. Listen to the jazz supergroup here. Dandu will open tonight’s show. Sunday, June 11. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online.
