The personalities and skills within the Philippe Crettien Quartet facilitate the perfect collaboration to create and execute original music featured on their newest CD (released Fall 2015) November Dusk. Philippe’s writing skills have evolved as well, composing personal and interesting tunes for this CD. There is a very beautiful unison between the tenor saxophone and the upright bass on November Dusk, which has solos flowing into each other against the counter melodies of the bass. The quartet has a mixture of ages which brings a fresh sound to their music.
Opening for the Quartet is the Rivers School Big Band! After last year’s performance, we couldn’t resist having these student back. The Band was a 3rd place finisher in the Charles Mingus 2016 High School Competition in New York, and took Silver at this year’s Massachusetts Jazz State Finals.
