John Abercrombie Organ Quartet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

Some 45 years after he first rose to prominence accompanying soul jazz organist Johnny “Hammond” Smith, John Abercrombie continues pushing the envelope of jazz guitar music into the 21st century. He began his recording career as a leader in 1974 with the release of Timeless, the first of his many albums for ECM Records; in addition, he has collaborated with such all–time jazz greats as Michael Brecker, Gato Barbieri, Billy Cobham, Gil Evans, McCoy Tyner, and Charles Lloyd. “Abercrombie, as thoughtful a guitar innovator for his generation as Jim Hall was for the preceding one, cloaks considerable bluesy pun­gency under his velvety tone.” (The Guardian)
