Four jazz master musicians formed the New York Standards Quartet (NYSQ) in 2006. The concept was a straightforward one: play jazz standards in a unique way. After performing a lot of original music they thought it would be liberating to play music based on conventional, standard jazz tunes that they had grown up playing. The band has been touring and developing together for more than ten years, and it definitely shows in the empathetic cohesion of the players. Audiences respond well to familiar music that is fresh sounding, accessible, and hard-swinging.
