Western Jazz Quartet

The Western Jazz Quartet presents an exciting blend of jazz from Duke Ellington and Dave Brubeck to contemporary originals, Afro Cuban and the sounds of Brazil. The group of resident faculty from Western Michigan University pairs a worldwide performance schedule with active jazz teaching. They promote jazz and jazz education through performances and workshops for school children of all ages. Western Jazz Quartet is equally at home working with students and touring with artists such as Bobby McFerrin and Randy Brecker. The quartet has released six award winning CDs, toured from Boston to Los Angeles, and appears regularly in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa. The Western Jazz Quartet is also a hit performing with symphony orchestras.
