What people are saying: The Spring Quartet

We need to talk about Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, Esperanza Spalding and Leo Genovese

First of all, wow. If you haven’t heard the buzz about this incredible new jazz supergroup, it’s time to start paying attention. Their show at the Lobero on Tuesday, February 18 was an absolute stunner that kicked off the 2014 Jazz at the Lobero series. If you have friends in any of the American or European stops on their tour, spread the word that this foursome is not to be missed.

Dawes works through writer’s block

Better call in a specialist.

In this new clip for Funny or Die, Los Angeles-based “American Folk Rock” band Dawes gets a “fixer” to help them find new musical inspiration. 

Catch Dawes live at the Lobero on December 11 with special guest Blake Mills, and see how much the Grouchy Ladybug has influenced their sound.

You can buy your tickets, here… and, looks like my work here is done.
