The Spring Quartet: Jack DeJohnette, drums; Joe Lovano, saxophones; Esperanza Spalding, bass; Leo Genovese, piano

Berklee Performance Center

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, deftly expanded upon both her art and herself as a world-renowned genre-bending composer, bassist and vocalist. Argentinian pianist Leo 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 Spring Quartet made its spectacular Boston debut on the Celebrity Series in 2014.

Esparanza Spalding will perform as scheduled.
Earlier this week you were informed that Esperanza Spalding would not be performing with the Spring Quartet this Sunday, April 14. Because we feel it is important to present this exceptional ensemble as billed, we have worked with Esperanza’s management to preserve her participation in this concert. We are pleased to report that Esperanza will perform as scheduled. Please disregard earlier notices and enjoy the show.

Prices, seating sections, and programs are subject to change.

“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.”
