the quadriga of jazz guitar
After successfully touring Europe with the likes of Larry Coryell, Philip Catherine, Airto Moreira and Michael Sagmeister the bandleaders Paulo Morello and Andreas Dombert present a new quartet line-up with the world´s foremost exponent of solo jazz guitar Martin Taylor from England and the outstanding Scandinavian guitar star Ulf Wakenius.
Four individualists with distinct personalities melt together for a creative power station and provide new steam for the much-cited magic of the strings. Four outstanding instrumentalists representing different generations rooted not just in the best tradition of mainstream jazz guitar but also in pop, world-music and Latin styles. They find a common grounding in standards and original compositions and create a very special warm and breathtaking music which is rarely found these days. Never before has jazz guitar experienced such a rich renaissance.
"Deeply impressive, exciting, masterful!“
Alexander Schmitz, Jazz Podium
"World class in every aspect!"
“Thus an astonishing, homogeneous, vivacious road movie on 24 strings is created which, at the same time, never gets out of hand. Four excellent, very different instrumentalists weld their art together in a vibrant, creative power station.“
"... this teaming-up of four string wizards is nothing less than a renaissance of the modern jazz guitar, a celebration of inspired dialogues and virtuoso improvisations, adventurous and intimate at the same time."
