The Billy Hart Quartet
Drummer Billy Hart has worked with genuine jazz legends for decades, including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Shirley Horn, Wes Montgomery and Stan Getz, among many others. Hart's assembled his own quartet for a nationwide early-summer tour, which concludes with two nights at Little Tokyo's Blue Whale. Hart is joined here by a group that includes bassist Ben Street, former Palos Verdes saxophonist Mark Turner and the highly regarded pianist Ethan Iverson, best known for his work as a member of the Bad Plus. The quartet has recorded two albums for the ECM label over the past three years as they continue to showcase a major, multi-generational exchange of musical ideas. Also Friday, June 20.
