If youʼve taken in a New York jazz gig in the last few years, thereʼs a good
chance John Hebertʼs mighty bass sound was bouncing from the
bandstand. Ubiquity is a form of success, and the number of established
leaders and impressive newcomers who have placed Hebert in their rhythm
section is growing; the guy seems to be everywhere. Which makes sense:
the Louisiana native boasts the kind of skills that breed agility. One night
heʼs working a classic club like the Village Vanguard with pianist Fred
Hersch, the next heʼs at an experimental art space like Roulette, supporting
guitarist Mary Halvorson. Versatility is a key Hebert credential; the bassist
purposefully approaches his artistry from a few different angles.
