THE CLASSIC JAZZ QUARTET
Kvartetten har existerat sedan år 2005 och består av fyra kvalificerade musikanter från Stockholm. De älskar att spela såväl hot jazz som evergreens och ballader. Genom att variera instrumentering kan olika stilar och sound skapas. Altsaxofon och rhythm guitar kan bytas ut mot klarinett och banjo. Bandet fungerar utmärkt med sångerska eller gästsolist.
