Team Concept – Live At Nature’s Table – July 19, 1990 (Nature’s Table Archive Vol 4)
“Five musicians working together, blending their sounds their ideas, their personalities to create an ensemble as colorful, witty and unique as their own individual styles: that’s the essence of JQ. Whatever the raw material–a jazz classic by Miles Davis, a great American song by Gershwin or Kern, or a spontaneous group improvisation painted on the empty canvas of the air–JQ moves through the music as if each musician were playing from within the center of the group, trying (and succeeding) to do nothing more than make his own part fit into the whole. What a lovely way to play.”
