  Musicisti di fama internazionale, ciascuno dei quali con un curriculum d’eccezione, si cimentano in un nuovo quartetto creato e voluto fortemente dai quattro jazzisti, appassionati come non mai da questa musica così viscerale, creativa e sempre imprevedibile. Questo quartetto abolisce il tradizionale concetto di leader e sideman e favorisce il contributo dei singoli membri in modo equiparato.
Essi interagiscono tra loro in un interplay naturale e fluido, con scambi di frasi ritmiche e armoniche che si ripetono e si inseguono l’una con l’altra. Tutto questo in un comune sentire che abbraccia la forza del jazz in un'unica strada. “Portraits” è un progetto basato sulla ricerca di brani non usuali di autori significativi nella storia del jazz. In questo primo capitolo Inside Jazz Quartet interpreta Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, Jusef Lateef, Steve Swallow e Carla Bley.
 
 
 
  Here we find four internationally renowned jazz artists, each with an exceptional curriculum, collaborating to form a new quartet based on mutual passion for visceral, creative and unpredictable sounds. They eschew the traditional roles of sideman and leader in favor of equal contributions by each member of the group.They interact with fluid interplay and an exchange of rhythmic and harmonic ideas that flow from one to another through an endless stream of motivic development. Sensitive listening and a common musical language enable them to embrace the inherent power of jazz in their own unique way.
"Portraits" is based on the search for unusual compositions by historically significant jazz composers. In this first chapter, Inside Jazz Quartet presents new interpretations of works by Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, Yusef Lateef, Steve Swallow and Carla Bley.


Writing songs is a little like making babies; you hope they'll have a good life once they're on their own, out in the real world. It's very gratifying to find my tunes treated with such care and respect by the Inside Jazz Quartet. They've clearly paid careful attention to what I wrote, but they've also brought to this music fresh insight, and a perspective I couldn't have imagined myself. Who could ask for more?
Best Wishes, Steve Swallow
