Hudson, New York's sensational jazz artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Moore Theater!

Hudson was formed in 2016 and is a quartet consisting of Jack DeJohnette (drums), John Medeski (keyboards), John Scofield (guitar), and Larry Grenadier (bass). They named themselves after New York's Hudson Valley as of of them have been influenced by other artists who had lived and/or worked there. John said in an interview, "All of us built our careers in the city and then moved out to the Hudson Valley to raise our kids and have a home. One thing that we all have in common is that, although we're urban musicians, we left the city to live in nature." Their musical style is best described as a blend of electric jazz (a genre that developed in the late 1960s when many jazz musicians began experimenting with electric instruments and amplified sound for the first time, as well as electronic effects and synthesizers), jazz funk (a subgenre of jazz music characterized by a strong back beat/groove, electrified sounds, and an early prevalence of analog synthesizers), and post bop (a modern jazz style that continues the distinguishing characteristics that separate jazz from the world of pop and rock). They released their eponymous debut album in 2017 and it features an eclectic repertoire reflective of Hudson Valley's musical history.

Don't miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to jazz music!
