Biography

http://www.acousticjazzquartet.com/Assets/PicSquare.jpg Always reaching for the highest level of expression and entertainment, the Acoustic Jazz Quartet defines contemporary acoustic jazz with its blend of sophisticated original compositions and a unique treatment of the classic jazz repertoire. A working ensemble since 1996, the Acoustic Jazz Quartet approaches the traditional quartet format from a new perspective creating a unique ensemble sound.

“The blend of tenor saxophone and acoustic guitar is a beguiling one, and the Californian Acoustic Jazz Quartet exploit it with great skill. A neat, airy band with everything from 6/8 bustles and sly blues to vigorous groove music. . . an extremely promising band.” - Chris Parker, The London Times

” self titled debut starts swinging and never stops. A White-Hot recommendation.” - C. Michael Bailey, AllAboutJazz.com

“JAZZ PICK OF THE WEEK. . . the group, by the sound of the album, shares a vision of swing, taste and execution. This foursome reflects the true heart of West Coast jazz in the ’90s: no nonsense, straight-ahead but not strait-laced and willing to revel in the mellowness that 300-plus days of sunshine and warmth impart to personality. In other words, the Acoustic Jazz Quartet is cool.” - Bill Kohlhaase, LA Weekly

The band’s sound is based in part on the original compositions of Jamie Findlay.
