Mr. Gone is a 4-piece ensemble exploring the groove based music of early electric jazz fusion, focusing on the groundbreaking music of Herbie Hancock and Weather Report. On their current tour, Mr. Gone is celebrating Herbie Hancock’s Head Hunters album. Originally released in late 1973, this season marks the 50th anniversary of this jazz funk masterpiece, the first jazz platinum album and one of the largest selling jazz albums in history.

Comprised of 4 full length compositions that sound deceptively simple on the surface, the wealth of musical material gives the ensemble something to really sink their collective teeth into. The show is rounded out with material composed by Wayne Shorter, and focuses on his tenure with Weather Report and other deep cuts from his extensive compositional catalog. Performances are currently being booked through the remainder of this year and beyond.

Mr. Gone is the brainchild of Peter Furlan (saxes - Dizzy Gillespie, 10,000 Maniacs, Eddie Henderson, Frank Foster, and more) Neil Alexander (keyboards - Mahavishnu Project, Corey Glover, Alphonse Mouzon, NAIL, and more), with Bryan Kopchak (drums) and Charlie Dougherty (bass). Referencing the origins of the jam band movement, they connect the past with the future, opening a window on the historical significance and influence of this music.
