Hush Point

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.
