The Quartet of Happiness Returns to Scullers!
June 14, 2011
A year after the release of “The Monster Returns” and the launching of their fund- raising campaign “JazzSmiles”, the Quartet of Happiness returns to Scullers Jazz Club with another evening of theatrical jazz!
Quartet of Happiness takes modern jazz and infuses it with a hefty dose of cheekiness and irreverent humor, wrapping it all up in the sort of theatrics reminiscent of Blue Man Group. The group has made it its mission to take jazz out of the ivory tower and make it accessible to a wide-ranging audience. Playing games, wearing costumes, and engaging the audience with their antics, the Quartet of Happiness’ performances are at times reminiscent of a cross between an improv comedy show and a theater of the bizarre. It’s part jazz, part performance art, and all of it the child of insane wit.
