    The Olson Pingrey Quartet (aka the OPQ) started as a tribute to the subtle and strangely subversive modernism of the Gerry Mulligan/Bob Brookmeyer quartet. We’ve since found something interesting by continuing that tradition. You’ll find our music to be lighthearted, but never frivolous as well as rigorous, but never academic. We combine the harmonic freedom of free jazz with the melodic vocabulary of hard bop and the quirky individualism of early swing. The unique timbre of the bari sax and trombone plus the lack of any chordal instrument really sets us apart from the average modern jazz group.

    At this particular performance we'll be premiering some new compositions and arrangements.
