Chet and Jim Doxas have brought together two generations of musicians at the top of their genre with the common thread being a devotion to great improvising. The group’s repertoire is comprised of original works from each band member and many of the compositions are written specifically for this quartet. Together, saxophonist Chet Doxas and drummer Jim Doxas have established international reputations as two of the most promising improvisors of their generation, both in their early 30’s.

Bassist John Menegon’s credits read like the evolution of modern jazz. Menegon has performed and recorded alongside Pat Metheny, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Lovano, and Lee Konitz, to name very few.

John Abercrombie’s contribution to the guitar and jazz music is undeniable. With an active career spanning over 50 years, Abercrombie is an artist who at once embraces the jazz tradition and creates it. His relationship with the record label ECM has seen Abercrombie produce some of the most important jazz albums in the last 30 years.
