|Quarteto Nuevo effectively merges western classical, eastern European folk, Latin and jazz with an organic feel that packs a wallop! The ensemble's razor-sharp precision is enhanced by its jazzy interludes, lightly rumbling percussion motifs, and challenging time signatures. They meld the music of ancient worlds and faraway places with a contemporary groove.
Damon Zick - soprano saxophone
Kenton Youngstrom - acoustic guitar
