Marketing Highlights

Four of the world’s top instrumentalists - Jack DeJohnette (drums), Larry Grenadier (bass), John Medeski (keyboardist of Medeski Martin & Wood), and John Scofield (guitar) - unite to form a supergroup collective on 'Hudson'.

• Based on the high-profile personnel, each of whom has built extensive audiences from their individual and group projects, and the brilliance of the music, this project is not only a major event for marketing in the jazz world but will create opportunities for marketing to the jam band world as well.

• In addition to original compositions, Hudson features covers of songs connected to the Hudson Valley by such songwriters as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and Joni Mitchell, creating opportunities for further marketing interest including editorial track premiere opportunities.

• The project came together organically as a way to celebrate music legend Jack DeJohnette’s 75th birthday. DeJohnette, an NEA Jazz Master and Grammy winner, is known for his work with Miles Davis, among many others across all genres of music. He was also ranked 40th on Rolling Stone’s Greatest Drummers of All Time (published in 2016).

• Extensive summer jazz festival and fall touring will support marketing, PR and sales efforts.
