Even though Hodge has played with such jazz titans as pianist Mulgrew Miller and trumpeter (and labelmate) Terence Blanchard, as well as R&B stars Jill Scott and Maxwell, the 33-year-old bassist is probably best known for anchoring the Grammy award-winning Robert Glasper Experiment. Similar to how Glasper concocts a distinctive m•lange of modern jazz, hip-hop, and R&B, Live Today too integrates those genres and more into something that's potent and personal. However, it is no Experiment offshoot. Similarities aside, the Live Today asserts a unique sound. There is a $15-$25 cover.

NYC: LEW TABACKIN QUARTET - A CELEBRATION OF COLEMAN HAWKINS

Lew Tabackin Quartet will present 'A Celebration of Coleman Hawkins' at DIZZY'S CLUB AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER (33 West 60th Street, NYC - 212-258-9595) on Monday through Wednesday, November 17th through 19th with shows at 7:30 & 9:30 pm. Tenor saxophone master Coleman Hawkins (aka "Bean") is one of the most important figures in the stylistic and popular development of jazz. Throughout his influential career - in which he brought the tenor saxophone into its now prominent role in jazz - Hawkins worked with the biggest names in jazz, from Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra and Duke Ellington, to a New York combo he led featuring Thelonious Monk, Oscar Pettiford, Miles Davis, and Max Roach as sidemen. Award-winning saxophonist, flutist, and bandleader Lew Tabackin is known in part for a huge sound and melodic approach to harmony that has drawn comparisons to Hawkins. Ten years ago, Tabackin led The Kennedy Center's much-praised celebration of Hawkins' centennial, and now, a decade later, he comes to Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola to celebrate Bean once again with his superb quartet comprised of Lew Tabackin, tenor saxophone; Peter Washington, bass; Kenny Washington, drums; Richard Wyands, piano. There is a $35 cover.
