QSF Plays Brubeck Quartet San Francisco

Artists: Quartet San Francisco

Record Label: ViolinJazz Recordings

Genre: Jazz

 

String quartets like Quartet San Francisco that play jazz compositions are challenging to label stylistically, as they are often putting their own stamp on the music, even if things seem tightly arranged. This focuses mostly on the works of jazz pianist/composer Dave Brubeck, including five of the seven songs from his best-selling album Time Out, though a few of the pieces have rarely been recorded by others. With Jeremy Cohen and Alisa Rose on violins, viola player Keith Lawrence, and cellist Michelle Djokic, they are similar in some ways to the Turtle Island String Quartet in their early years, though the QSF have remained in a jazz setting over time. A nice spicy riff on a jazz classic. The strings are up to the task - a crisp, moody rendition with enough variation and nuance for many enjoyments. This compelling release by Quartet San Francisco should appeal to chamber music and jazz fans alike.
