Derrick Hodge Headlines Melbourne International Jazz Festival Ft. Chris Turner
After two sold-out shows with the Grammy-winning Robert Glasper Experiment at the 2012 Festival, genre-shaping bassist, composer and producer Derrick Hodge returns to Melbourne with his highly anticipated new project feat. Special Guest Chris Turner vocals, Federico Pena (keys) Michael Aaberg (keys) and Mark Colenburg (drums).
A musical mastermind with a vast horizon of influences and styles, Hodge has performed and recorded with jazz titans such as Mulgrew Miller and Terence Blanchard, R&B stars Jill Scott and Maxwell, and hip-hop icons Kanye West and Common. His 2013 Blue Note debut, Live Today, combines lush harmonies, cinematic soundscapes, blistering improvisation, and raw bass-driven grooves. More Info here
