The South Texas Jazz Quartet lives at the intersection of Texas and American Jazz. It had been said that they play Jazz songs Country and Country songs Jazz. Influenced by great artists like Duke Ellington, Willie Nelson, George Gershwin and Bob Wills, they seek to reflect their time and place. Their time is today, and their place is Texas.
From Jim Beal of the San Antonio Express-News: "The STJQ swings with verve and imagination, breathing new life, and updated lyrics here and there into the songs without doing a bit of damage to the classics. Its top-flight musicians prove there's room for fun in jazz and room for jazz in fun."
The album is now available FREE OF CHARGE. Enjoy!
