Yoshi’s is pleased to welcome back the John Hanrahan Quartet with Andrew Dixon, performing Wayne Shorter’s JuJu album in its entirety. The John Hanrahan Quartet has been playing together in Chicago and around the globe for over 20 years. Many Central Coast jazz fans will recognize the John Hanrahan Quartet from their breakout performance at the 2014 Monterey Jazz Festival, where they paid tribute to John Coltrane’s ‘A Love Supreme’, widely considered one of the greatest jazz recordings of all time.
Now the quartet turns it gaze towards another one of the greatest years of contemporary popular music: Wayne Shorterýs JuJu Album. Blue Note Records released JuJu, the fifth album by popular jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter, in July 1965. The record was Shorterýs second for Blue Note, following Night Dreamer. Also featured on Juju is Hanrahanýs muse and mentor Elvin Jones, the drummer who contributed to making the album the classic treasure that it is.
The Chicago Tribune wrote of the tribute that “the Hanrahan Quartet embrace, honor, and nurture a masterpiece.” If any group is suited for paying homage to such iconic artists and moments, it’s this Quartet, which brings enthusiasm and sensitivity to the music.
Featuring John Hanrahan on drums; Andrew Dixon on Sax; Dahveed Behroozi on Piano; and Giulio Xavier Cetto on Bass, this encore performance of Juju will be an evening not to be missed, when Yoshi’s fans will be elated with the recreation of this stylistic album, like only the John Hanrahan Quartet can achieve. Celebrate the performance of this iconic album at Yoshi’s on January 27th, by getting tickets here.
