“Spalding has made her mark not just as a virtuoso jazz bassist or an effortlessly nimble singer but as an exotic hybrid of the two.” — The New York Times
“After 30 albums as a leader and at least 25 years in the spotlight, it’s clear Joe Lovano is more than a dominant figure in jazz.” — Wall Street Journal

A multi-generational supergroup that has honed a distinctive identity based on multi-directional rhythmic fluidity, Spring Quartet embodies all the fresh inventiveness evoked by its seasonal moniker. NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette is one of the most influential drummers in jazz history, as well as a brilliant pianist and composer. In addition to his seminal work with Miles Davis, Charles Lloyd and his own Special Edition, DeJohnette has been one third of piano luminary Keith Jarrett’s sublime trio for the last three decades. With two-dozen albums for Blue Note, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano, a former member of the SFJAZZ Collective, is one of the era’s definitive improvisers and bandleaders. His newest ensemble, Us Five, includes Esperanza Spalding and won Lovano a triple crown in DownBeat’s 2010 Critics Poll for Jazz Artist of the Year, Tenor Saxophonist and Jazz Group. Esperanza Spalding, a virtuosic bassist and luminous vocalist, was already the brightest young star in jazz before her unprecedented 2011 Best New Artist Grammy Award. She has become an international phenomenon, and her 2012 release, Radio Music Society, debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard album charts. The formidable Argentinean pianist Leo Genovese, a longtime Spalding collaborator, rounds out the band.
