Blue Note All-stars (2015-17)

Others disagree and point out that there are many artists today with new voices and different points of view. They are pushing forward with their creative visions of where jazz is heading.

Blue Note All-Stars, an iconic group of originals that has explored these new horizons in 2014, is the most prominent. The band was formed to commemorate the 75th anniversary Blue Note Records, where future jazz giants such as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock made their first recordings.

Derrick Hodge plays bass. Kendrick Scott plays drums. From
