Record release show for Jason Stein Quartet album, Lucille on Delmark Records!

Bass clarinetist Jason Stein's quartet explores a combination of Stein's original compositions as well as uncommonly heard compositions by such luminaries as Lennie Tristano, Thelonious Monk, and Charlie Parker. Stein's work on the bass clarinet is expanding the instrument's comfort zone and capabilities and his quartet uniquely showcases his ability to seamlessly work within both more traditional jazz idioms as well as free improvisation.

Jason Stein - bass clarinet
Keefe Jackson - tenor saxophone and contrabass clarinet
Joshua Abrams - bass
Tom Rainey - drums

"Stein is exhilarating, a young master of his fiendishly difficult horn. Stein is a player to look out for." - Chris May, All About Jazz

"Stein stands apart from the standard instrumental lineage. Whereas a player like Eric Dolphy or Michel Portal builds on wide intervallic leaps and verticality, Stein (like Michel Pilz, Rudi Mahall or John Tchicai) operates in a horizontal fashion, favoring a breadth of twists and turns more sideways than anything else, woven into a post-Ornette fabric." - Clifford Allen, All About Jazz
