Kasper Tom Christiansen (dr), Mads la Cour (cor, flh, hrn), Frederik Vedersø (git), Andreas Lang (b)
All songs written and arranged by QUARTz. Recorded October 2006 at The Carl Nielsen Academy of Music, Odense (DK). Recorded, mixed and mastered by Torben Sminge. Produced by QUARTz and Torben Sminge.
In Kasper Tom Christiansen and Andreas Lang on drums and bass, QUARTz has a cooking rhythm section to support the virtuoso trumpet solos of Mads la Cour, and Frederik Vedersø contributes to the distinct sound of the band with his melodic guitar playing and rock sound.
Not only as humans, but also musically, QUARTz is a group of strong individual personalities which comes to show in the complex repertoire. The sound of jazz is interrupted by rock-inspired pieces and melancholic soundscapes. The free element in the music make way for the outstanding soloists of QUARTz to move in new directions and expand the musical borders a little bit during each concert.
