Guided by the teachings of John Coltrane, the self-described experimental jazz quartet has paved the way for the next wave of jazz artists, making a significant impact with their debut album, “Two For Joy,” launched in 2015. The album featured a fusion of spiritual jazz, hip hop, afrobeat, post-bop and funk while retaining characteristics of the underground scene. The International music press has hailed the quartet’s fourth album (Ironside 2019) as one of the best jazz albums in recent years.
