    For 17 years, The Bad Plus has defied categorization, embracing sonic adventure with new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights. This intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques in their trademark specialty: deconstructing songs from the pop/rock and R&B worlds, mixing the sensibilities of post-60s jazz and indie rock.

    For 17 years, The Bad Plus has defied easy categorization, embracing sonic adventure with new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights. This intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques in their trademark specialty: deconstructing songs from the pop/rock and R&B worlds, and better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-60s jazz and indie rock. Lineup changes are nothing new in the jazz world, and this year the Philadelphia-based Orrin Evans joined Reid Anderson and David King as the group’s pianist, replacing Ethan Iverson in the era-defining left-of-center trio. A longtime fixture of the jazz scene in his native Philadelphia, Evans has had his own trio (Tarbaby) and has something in common with both Anderson and King: passion. With a new CD with Evans already in the works, the trio has pledged to keep playing the compositions that led them to stardom in the first place as the acoustic jazz trio for the future.

    (Fred Hersch Trio)

    June 15, 2018 Berlind Theatre 8:00pm

    John Hébert, bass
    Eric McPherson, drums

    When you talk about today’s indispensable jazz pianists, one name leads every list—Fred Hersch. Indeed, in the pantheon of jazz royalty, Fred is one of the kings, after Keith Jarrett who is arguably our leading exponent of solo jazz piano.

    Keith Jarrett by Rose Anne Colavito

    For over forty years, he has continued to invent the standard jazz repertoire unlike anybody else, which helps explain his ten Grammy nominations (including two this year) not to mention 52 recordings as composer, bandleader, and theatrical conceptualist/innovator of individualistic jazz—a “jazz for the 21st Century” (New York Times). No one has said it better than his fellow pianist Jason Moran: “Fred at the piano is like LeBron James on the basketball court—he’s perfection.” The title of his latest solo CD is Open Book, a recording that one critic called “a recording that makes it seem as if Fred Hersch is the finest jazz pianist in the world.” And the album’s title is serendipity itself: Herch’s memoir Good Things Happen Slowly (Random House, 2017) tells the fascinating story of how a gay Jewish kid from Cincinnati broke into the highest reaches of New York’s jazz scene—where he still reigns.

    Rhiannon Giddens – vox/fiddle
    Dirk Powell – guitar/keys/fiddle/vox
    Hubby Jenkins – guitar/vox
    Jamie Dick – drums/ percussion
    Jason Sypher – bass

    Singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens is the co-founder of the GRAMMY award-winning string band Carolina Chocolate Drops, in which she also plays banjo and fiddle. She began gaining recognition as a solo artist when she stole the show at the T Bone Burnett–produced Another Day, Another Time concert at New York City’s Town Hall in 2013. The elegant bearing, prodigious voice, and fierce spirit that brought the audience to its feet that night is also abundantly evident on Giddens’ critically acclaimed solo debut, the Grammy nominated album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, which masterfully blends American musical genres like gospel, jazz, blues, and country, showcasing her extraordinary emotional range and dazzling vocal prowess.

    Giddens has appeared on The Late Show, Austin City Limits, Later…with Jools Holland, and both CBS Saturday and Sunday Morning, and has performed for President Obama and the First Lady on a White House Tribute to Gospel, along with Aretha Franklin and Emmylou Harris.

    Giddens duets with country superstar Eric Church on his powerful anti-racism song Kill a Word, which is currently top 15 on country radio; the two have performed the song on The Tonight Show and the CMA Awards, among other programs. Giddens received the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Singer of the Year and has won the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Bluegrass and Banjo in 2016. In 2017, Giddens was the recipient of a MacArthur Genius Grant.

    Giddens, who studied opera at Oberlin, makes her acting debut with a recurring role on the recently revived television drama Nashville, playing the role of Hanna Lee “Hallie” Jordan, a young social worker with “the voice of an angel”.

    Matthews Theater at McCarter Theater Centre Princeton

    Friday, May 18 8:00pm

    With Brooklyn Rider

    Brooklyn Rider

    Esteemed saxophonist Joshua Redman joins forces with the game changing string quartet Brooklyn Rider, along with fellow all-star collaborators Satoshi Takeishi (percussion) and Scott Colley (bass), for an entirely unique convergence of their respective worlds. The group first started working together in early 2015 to explore Aspects of Darkness and Light, a work designed to be a true meeting of equals in its combination of jazz and classical elements.

    One of the most admired and charismatic artists of his generation, the ceaselessly innovative saxophonist Joshua Redman “is unparalleled among horn players today” (JazzTimes). From McCoy Tyner to Brad Mehldau, The Bad Plus, and now Brooklyn Rider, Redman has collaborated with a diverse and prestigious list of musicians over the course of his career, all the while emerging as a modern jazz icon in his own right.

    Hailed as “the future of chamber music,” Brooklyn Rider offers eclectic repertoire in gripping performances that continue to attract legions of fans and draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike.

    Their McCarter performance marks the first public outing for this collaboration.

    Zakir Hussain’s percussion masters of India has been a fixture at McCarter for a decade—but he always has something new up his sleeve and this time it’s with American Jazz Master bassist Dave Holland, as they explore the relationship between jazz and Indian music, and how the two genres helped each other’s evolution. These two masters will be joined by Chris Potter on sax; jazz pianist Louiz Banks; drummer Gino Banks; and from India, guitarist Sanjay Divecha and composer/vocalist Shankar Mahadevani. Talk about crosscurrents—here is one that brings together not only two musical masters, but two art forms that share a common bond.

    McCarter Theatre Center

    Tuesday, May 1, 2018

    Jeremy Denk

    Program:
    Mozart: Rondo in A Minor, K. 511
    Prokofiev: Visions Fugitives, Op.22
    Beethoven: Sonata No. 30, Op. 109
    Schumann: Fantasy in C, Op. 17

    Jeremy Denk has carved out his own unique place as a recitalist, focusing on a thought-provoking repertoire that ranges from Beethoven to the two Ives Sonatas, the fiendishly difficult Ligeti Etudes, and Bach’s Goldberg Variations (No. 1 on Billboard’s Classical Chart). His recital this season will include Beethoven’s Sonata No. 30 Op. 109 and the Schumann Fantasy, but also Prokofiev’s rarely heard Visions Fugitives. How many pianists can you name who have won both a MacArthur “Genius Grant” and the Avery Fisher Prize? Denk also finds the time to be a journalist as well. His blog, Think Denk, where he recounts his touring experiences, is fascinating to follow and provides additional insights into his arresting sensitivity and wit.

    Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad Ensemble returns to McCarter. The renowned cellist serves as its Artistic Director, directly overseeing the engagement of its participants and the details of every program. While its members change from year to year, they hail from more than 20 countries along the routes of the ancient Silk Road, a series of land and sea trade routes crisscrossing Eurasia from Japan to the Mediterranean Sea. Most are musicians, but there are also storytellers and visual artists among them; their voices and their instruments (kamancheh, gaita, shakuhachi, pipa, sheng, and bawu), which all support Yo-Yo Ma’s goal: to maintain the integrity of art rooted in authentic traditions while nourishing global connections.
