Jazz Room Series at Home<br>Billy Hart Quartet<br>w/Mark Turner, Ethan Iverson, Ben Street


This quartet began as a side project for pianist Ethan Iverson, best known as a founder of The Bad Plus.  As gigs and tours progressed, the other three group members (who are all a generation younger than Hart) realized that the iconic drummer should have the leadership role.  Hart’s career has spanned collaborations with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery, Shirley Horn, and countless others on over 600 recordings.  Hart has also been involved at Oberlin Conservatory, Western Michigan University, and was the inaugural artist to open William Paterson’s new Recital Hall with pianist Chris Pattishall six years ago.  Each of the other group members is a leader in his own right: Mark Turner is one of the most influential virtuoso saxophonists on the scene, Iverson’s recordings with Bad Plus have rewritten the jazz repertoire, and bassist Ben Street is a first-call player with Danilo Perez, Sam Rivers, Lage Lund and many others.
