The Java Quartet celebrates 20 years with the release of their seventh album and an East coast tour. The appropriately named new album, Together, returns to the acoustic (and organic) nature of the group, blending exotic grooves and spoken word into the jazz harmonic world that is The Java Quartet. At once driving, trance-like and reflective, The Java Quartet establishes their own corner of sonic territory. Recorded live in a large TV studio, Together captures a two-day session of intuitive playing, trust and solidarity that comes from two decades of shaping a collective musical memory. A beautiful acoustic work created by Michael Galeazzi bass, Matthew Ottignon sax, Mike Quigley drums, Greg Coffin piano, Together is spiced with guest Bobby Singh’s seamless tabla playing and an additional two ‘bonus’ tracks featuring spoken word interplay by wordsmith MC Morganics. Together is all that is typically Java: spacious, diverse, elegant and honest.
Performers: Matthew Ottignon (saxophone) Greg Coffin (piano) Michael Galeazzi (bass) Mike Quigley (drums)
