Brass Jaw Saxophone QuartetBrass Jaw Saxophone Quartet

Brass Jaw : The Saxophone Quartet, conceived in the late summer of 2003.
This ensemble brings together the talents of some of the finest saxophonists in the Scottish Jazz circuit.
While there are many examples of the saxophone quartet in jazz history, it’s relatively rare on the contemporary British scene. Watching the Brass Jaw Saxophone Quartet it isn’t difficult to see why. Without a rhythm section the task of making everything swing is shared by everyone, and solos must be extremely focused. The Brass Jaw boys generally do a brilliant job, packing their performance with an impressive amount of detail while achieving an extremely classy sound.
 
“Altogether, an accomplished and ambitious ensemble who aren’t afraid to enjoy themselves.”
The Guardian
