      On October 18, 8 pm, Coastal Jazz presents Hudson at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (6265 Crescent Road, UBC).

      The American jazz supergroup is composed of drummer Jack DeJohnette, bassist Larry Grenadier, keyboardist John Medeski, and guitarist John Scofield and is named after the Hudson River Valley that each member calls home.

      Hudson has collected a repertoire of Hudson Valley materials from Bob Dylan and the Band, the Woodstock Festival's Joni Mitchell's anthem, and blues-soul hits from rocker Jimi Hendrix.

      The group's recent album, released this past June, will feature original compositions as well, inspired by the environment and each other.

      Tickets for Hudson are $73 and $61 and are available online.
