John Abercrombie Quartet

w/ Marc Copland, Drew Gress & Joey Baron

With a career spanning more than 40 years, John Abercrombie has become a master of impeccable jazz guitar innovation. Favoring unusual sounds, Abercrombie is a restless experimenter, working firmly in the jazz tradition while pushing the boundaries of meter and harmony, and his body of work has explored the realms of jazz fusion, post bop, free jazz and avant-garde jazz. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, he became one of New York’s most in-demand session players during the 1960s. In 1974, Abercrombie released his first solo record, Timeless, for ECM Records, which has been immortalized as one of the most famous ECM recordings of all time featuring Jan Hammer and Jack DeJohnette. Over the years he has recorded and/or performed with top jazz stars such as Gil Evans, McCoy Tyner, John Scofield, Gato Barbieri, Chico Hamilton, Billy Cobham, the Brecker Brothers, Jack DeJohnette, Ralph Towner, Joey Baron and Barry Miles. Abercrombie keeps up a heavy touring schedule with his longstanding working band, who will make their Portland debut. He continues to record for ECM Records, a relationship that has spanned more than 30 years and upwards of two dozen solo recordings.
