Colter Frazier Quartet

"Late Again"


Genre: Jazz

Sound description: Tenor saxophonist Colter Frazier has been relatively isolated in Santa Barbara, California for many years, honing a unique playing style and compositional sound that shines like a beacon of hope in a dark world of jazz that too often lacks individuality.
His new quartet of tenor sax, viola, bass, and drums navigate seamlessly between tight, chamber-like compositions and more open-ended, yet highly conceptualized improvisations. There is no shredding, no fireworks, no jazz cliches. This is fresh, new acoustic music with a unique vision, and you will be glad you listened.
