CABARET TONIGHT IN BOSTON: DERRICK HODGE CD RELEASE AT REGATTABAR
The Boston CD release show for the extraordinary bassist and composer Derrick Hodge's debut album on Blue Note Records, Live Today! will be presented at THE REGATTABAR at the Charles Hotel (1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA - 617-395-7757) on Friday, September 6th at 7:30 pm. He is joined on stage by Christian Sands, keys; Travis Sayles, keys; and Mark Colenburg, drums. Live Today signals a new journey for bassist and composer Derrick Hodge as he embarks on a solo recording career. The title alludes to his top guiding principle in creating his debut album, a stunning achievement that showcases the profound depth and breadth of his musicality. Even though Hodge has played with such jazz titans as pianist Mulgrew Miller and trumpeter (and labelmate) Terence Blanchard, as well as R&B stars Jill Scott and Maxwell, the 33-year-old bassist is probably best known for anchoring the Grammy award-winning Robert Glasper Experiment. Similar to how Glasper concocts a distinctive melange of modern jazz, hip-hop, and R&B, Live Today too integrates those genres and more into something that's potent and personal. However, it is no Experiment offshoot. Similarities aside, the Live Today asserts a unique sound. There is a $25 cover.
