“By looking not only to the past, but more so the future, the Jazz String Quintet aspires to create music that has depth and roots, but still sounds contemporary and fun." --Mark Turner, All About Jazz

“The Jazz String Quintet is able to swing and dig in because they have total control over their instruments and most importantly, they have developed and created their own concept of music." -- Chicago Magazine

Jazz String Quintet & Jim Gailloreto:

The brainchild of gifted saxophonist and composer/arranger Jim Gailloreto, JSQ is immersed in the traditions and performance practices of classical music while simultaneously expanding and exploring all the truest elements of jazz. Within this unique collective, their music pays homage to some of America's greatest jazz legends including Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, and Wayne Shorter.

In addition to performing unique versions of jazz standard, they also perform many original compositions - all by Gailloreto. Their sound is firmly rooted in jazz harmony, melody, and rhythm. Most importantly, improvisation plays an integral role in each composition and contributes greatly to the spontaneity of every performance.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
