This all-star group has joined forces to record and tour in 2017. The ensemble takes its name from the Hudson Valley area of New York State, where each of these musicians resides.


Hudson originally came together in the fall of 2014 to perform at the Woodstock Jazz Festival. In 2016, Jack DeJohnette began looking for a project to commemorate his 75th birthday the following year. Fond memories of that performance had him seeking a reunion. In celebration of his milestone year, they'll kick off their North American tour in June, followed by several large festival dates and the entire month of October. 

With a magical recording in the can slated for release in 2017, all four are keen to share this inspired ensemble with the world. Encouraged by a fiery dynamic chemistry, the album features original compositions as well as collected repertoire of Hudson Valley materials, from Bob Dylan's “Lay Lady Lay” and “A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall” to The Band's “Up On Cripple Creek,” the Woodstock Festival's Joni Mitchell anthem and Jimi Hendrix's “Wait Until Tomorrow.”

This collective known as Hudson demonstrates qualities and virtues that are consistent with the place from which it takes its name — creatively rich, highly interactive and loaded with possibility. Hudson equally demonstrates the qualities and virtues consistent with each musician. Defying precise musical definition yet honoring the traditions by which each member developed, they are bonded as one unique and individual voice — coming to a town near you.
