This bunch of jazz giants all hunkered down to jam under one roof is likely to be termed “distinguished.” And, sure, they are rather dang eminent, what with their innumerable landmark accomplishments that have shaped the jazz we know and revere today. Yet a tough modernity reigns in pianist Hancock, sax man Shorter and trumpeter Blanchard’s music, as players, composers, arrangers and bandleaders who are by their very natures boundary smashers and rulebreakers, and whose distinguishing common trait is an inability to sound stuffy or square. They’ll be joined by the superb rhythm section of Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and James Genus on the bass, along with James Gaffigan conducting the L.A. Philharmonic in a new work by Blanchard based on a Hancock improvisation. With an opening set by jazz/funk collective Snarky Puppy.
