"HUDSON debut CD review"

Hudson is Chicagoan Matt Hudson -- a great guitarist who's getting some help here from Anthony Nicholson -- in a set that's filled with jazzy warmth and cosmic vibes! The approach here is a lot more jazz-based than you might expect -- lots of lead lines and solos from Hudson, but also keyboards from Nicholson and William Kurk -- soaring out nicely in ways that are a fair bit different than some of the more club-oriented recordings we've heard from Nicholson in years past. Rhythms aren't too straightforward, but they're also not too broken either -- just settled nicely in a very fresh place that gives the album a unique feel all its own -- and some gently soulful moments. Nicholson produced, and also plays a bit of drums -- and titles include "For Fear Disappear", "The Singularity", "I Miss 1998 to 2002", "Shuffle", "Research Turtles", and "Welling Up". - dusty groove america


HUDSON released their self-titled debut album on Lost Nation Sound in June of 2007. They are currently working on a follow up LP due for a June 2008 release.



Hudson was formed in 2006 because Matt Hudson, Anthony Reid and Will Baggett had so much fun playing music together. They found that they enjoyed music with a fresh sense of rhythm and harmony. This included experimentation with odd meter grooves and improvisation. The result was an authentic brand of jazz that reflected the players love of hip-hop, rock and funk.
In the fall of 2007, David Holloway was added on Keyboards as well as trombonist Norman Palm. Because both of these men understand the importance of instrumental music that is as stimulating as it is accessible, they were a perfect fit.
Since then this quintet has been performing for audiences not only in Chicago but Brooklyn, Washington DC, and Pittsburgh as well.
