Jazzfest rumours?

Recommended Posts

There's a new (super)group called "Hudson" (drummer Jack DeJohnette, bassist Larry Grenadier, keyboardist John Medeski and guitarist John Scofield)

https://www.jambase.com/article/hudson-supergroup-announces-2017-tour-dates

They're playing in Saratoga Springs, NY on June 25; Toronto, ON on June 29; and Montreal, QC on June 30. I hope they'll be in Ottawa, maybe between Saratoga and Toronto.

Aloha,

Brad

That sounds like it would be pretty great.

Beat me to it. I read about these guys for the first time today and noticed a Jazzfest-sized hole in their schedule. Fingers crossed.

Related: for people who are interested in this kind of thing (I certainly am) their rider is publicly available on their website. Nothing too crazy, but I was surprised to see that Medeski doesn't travel with any of his own keyboards (at least not for this group) and DeJohnette only travels with his own cymbals.

Tears for Fears and/or Hall & Oates.

Though neither are jazz, they just announced a co-headlining summer tour with dates in the area around the time of the Ottawa Jazzfest.

Co-headlining?  That surprises me.  Without googling I think the average person could name way more H&O song titles than T4F songs, no?
