The brainchild of pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, Artemis is an international ensemble of modern jazz masters. Named for the ancient Greek goddess of the hunt, the multinational and multigenerational group was founded in 2017 under the banner of International Women’s Day. Soon afterward, it made a memorable splash at the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival and followed that triumph with its debut recording on Blue Note in 2020. Each member of the ensemble is a composer and bandleader in her own right, so the collective’s repertoire draws on each player’s distinctive personality, from new compositions written expressly for the band to classics by Lee Morgan, Thelonious Monk, and Wayne Shorter. “A killer line-up of players…they all converge on this extremely cosmopolitan, sleek, rhythm-forward, modern sound” (NPR).

This performance is made possible, in part, by Nadine Tang.
