Turtle Island Quartet at Dumbarton Concerts!
Birth of the Cool
These guys play real jazz. They improvise solos. They swing. They employ jazz inflections. And they play the same instruments Haydn used in the 18th century. – Aspen Times
Turtle Island Quartet shows the world how a string quartet plays jazz by employing their signature groove-based rhythmic techniques to transform classic selections from Miles Davis’ Cool Jazz recording, Birth of the Cool. Israel, Venus De Milo, and Jeru become jazz string quartet masterpieces. The Quartet explore other perennial favorites such as Dave Brubeck’s Blue Rondo a la Turk, Gerry Mulligan’s Bernie’s Tune, Miles Davis’ dreamy Miles Ahead, and the Modern Jazz Quartet’s darker Django.
