Left Coast Quartet
Inspired by the methods of Lee Konitz, Dizzy Gillespie, Lennie Tristano, Clifford Brown, Stan Getz, and Chet Baker among others, Left Coast Quartet is a showcase of creative original compositions and tight interplay between horns and rhythm section, with firm roots in the traditions of jazz and improvised music.

Left Coast Quartet takes inspiration from the events in our lives that give us joy and inspire us to continue as creative artists.
"Peak Viewing Hour" is a reference to the beautiful mountain that we sit in the shadow of on a clear Pacific Northwest day.
"Post Alley Strut" highlights the creative jazz community that has been forged over the last 25 years at the Owl 'N Thistle during the weekly jam session.
Each of these songs is an ode to the local community we cherish and the beautiful environment we occupy, all while paying homage to the artists that paved the way before us.
