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.
