Description

Dizzy on CD

Esq was first formed in spring 1998 by Richard Nelson Hall in The San Francisco Bay Area. As implied by their full name 'Extra Sonic Quartet' their mission is to make the most out of their instruments with deeper grooves and richer sounds. They are an instrumental jazz quartet comprising of acoustic & electric pianos, guitars and basses with traps drums. Their 'Dizzy' album pays tribute to the music of Dizzy Gillespie by including arrangements of four songs made famous by him, there are also four original compositions together four other carefully selected pieces that explore the wide spectrum of jazz styles that represent the esq sound. There is Salsa, Samba & Straight-ahead; there is Bebop, Funk & House. Through extensive live performances on stages large and small, the members of esq have developed a special empathy for spontaneous creativity. This is what jazz should be about - thoughtful arrangements, lyrical lines and solid grooves with balanced and accommodating individual performances that make the ensemble exponentially better than the sum of it's parts. 'Dizzy' is a studio recording that captures the live sound of acoustic jazz, the culmination of five years of musical friendships: Richard Nelson Hall (pianos) Scott Foster (guitars) Andrew Higgins (basses) and Ben Leinbach (drums). Enjoy!
