‘Hudson’ is the first album from a jazz supergroup collective comprised of four of the world’s top instrumentalists: Jack DeJohnette (drums), Larry Grenadier (bass), John Medeski (keyboardist of Medeski Martin & Wood) and John Scofield (guitar).In addition to original compositions, ‘Hudson’ features covers of songs connected to the Hudson Valley by such songwriters as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Robbie Robertson and Joni Mitchell. The music will have broad appeal beyond mainstream jazz confines.•The project came together organically as a way to celebrate music legend Jack DeJohnette’s 75th birthday. DeJohnette, an NEA Jazz Master and Grammy winner, is known for his work with Miles Davis among many others across all genres of music.•One of the core elements of this project is the group’s namesake: New York's Hudson River Valley. All four musicians live there and it’s also where the project was conceived of and recorded. The Hudson River Valley serves as a major source of inspiration for all the group members, with their shared love for the area’s spectacular beauty and their growing sense of concern over environmental issues facing the area.
