About this show

Over a career spanning more than 40 years and nearly 50 albums, John Abercrombie has established himself as one the masters of jazz guitar. Favoring unusual sounds and nontraditional ensembles (recent quartet recordings have included violinist Mark Feldman), Abercrombie is a restless experimenter, working firmly in the jazz tradition while pushing the boundaries of meter and harmony. Abercrombie has performed live and recorded with a long list of jazz greats, including Gil Evans, Gato Barbieri, Barry Miles, Chico Hamilton, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Richie Beirach, to name a few. Abercrombie keeps up a heavy touring schedule and continues to record with ECM, a relationship that has spanned more than 30 years. As he told one interviewer, "I'd like people to perceive me as having a direct connection to the history of jazz guitar, while expanding some musical boundaries." That, without a doubt, will be his legacy. John Abercombie Quartet features Mark Feldman (Violin), Joey Baron (Drums), and Thomas Morgan (Bass).
