    Combining the vibrancy of modern jazz and popular music with the sophistication of a classical chamber group, The Four Bags feature a captivating blend of Trombone, Accordion, Guitar and Woodwinds. With mature improvisation and a wide array of tonal colors, The Four Bags approach music from Schoenberg to the Beastie Boys in a way that is "wonderfully difficult to define, easy to enjoy." (David Garland, WNYC “Spinning on Air”)

    Based in New York City since 1999, The Four Bags have been featured at Symphony Space’s Thalia Theatre Music Series, the "Next Next" festival at BAM Café, the "Celebrate Brooklyn!" festival in Prospect Park, The Wall to Wall Joni Mitchell Marathon at Symphony Space, A Tribute to Burt Bacharach in the Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Konnichiwa Festa!
