Derrick Hodge - "Dances with Ancestors"
Bassist and composer Derrick Hodge performs selections from his debut Blue Note Records recording, Live Today, with Federico Peña, keyboards, Michael Aaberg, keyboards, Keyon Harrold, trumpet, and Mark Colenburg, drums. Having served as sideman to the likes of Terence Blanchard and Robert Glasper, Hodge firmly steps out as leader as the New York Times states, “with roots in gospel, jazz and R&B….bearing earnest intentions and a glow of transparent optimism.” Part of Blue Note at 75.
