Hush Point

This event has passed

Brooklyn's post "cool jazz" quartet, Hush Point, exudes swing and lyricism while "delving into deeply interactive improvisation that doesn't need to shout to be heard," – DOWNBEAT. As a working, rehearsing, and recording quartet, Hush Point carries that real band vibe, with an earnest determination to push forward, and with a stylistic range of repertoire that makes for compelling listening. With three critically-acclaimed albums for Sunnyside Records, the group’s established its personal brand of "dry and intimate and surprising music, volume cut in half, swing rhythm subtly stretched into more up-to-date grooves… an extended experiment in careful improvising, using counterpoint to move quickly and un-sentimentally toward the open spaces," – New York Times.
