The Overtone Quartet at the Kennedy Center
Oct 10, 2009 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM
For more than four decades, three-time Grammy® winner Dave Holland "has defined the best in jazz" (JazzTimes), commanding attention as few bassists ever have. A musician of profound imagination and sophistication, he brings together an extraordinary quartet, collaborating with acknowledged masters of the next generation, each an innovator, respecting a legacy of creative freedom. Grammy®-nominated saxophone impresario Chris Potter, 39, is characterized by limitless creativity, a vibrant sense of swing, and a full awareness of past, present, and future. Genre-bending pianist Jason Moran, 34--influenced by opera, classical and world music, and even rap--performs music that's "serious and directed, and some of the best live jazz around now" (The New York Times). Virtuosic drummer Eric Harland, 33, is one of the most in-demand and praised jazz drummers in the world, with more than 30 albums under his belt.
The Overtone Quartet will give two performances on the evening of Oct. 10, 2009 at 7:30 and 9:30. Ticket purchasing options and complete concert information are available at the Kennedy Center website.
