Album Review

Quartet San Francisco – “Pacific Premieres” – [Violinjazz Recordings]

Cousin Mary   11/13/2013   A Library, CD

This accomplished ensemble seeks new sounds for the string quartet, but think more toward Stephane Grappelli than Kronos Quartet. Very fine playing at the intersection of modern classical and jazz with some nods to a gypsy vibe. All the composers are from California – the last track was written by the Quartet’s violinist.
