Concert - Q.S. Jazz
Jazz is not about when a song was written or what instrumentation is used to perform a song. Jazz is more an approach, vibe or interpretation. Many of the standards of this genre were simply pop songs of the day. Q.S. Jazz was born from this very mindset. Utilizing a traditional quintet Q.S. Jazz performs material that might seem nontraditional but is 100 percent jazz. Q.S. Jazz started out as a trio of musicians who loved the classic style of jazz and embraced all forms of music. Bringing their own interpretations of jazz classics and "jazzing up" their renditions of blues and even rock tunes, Q.S. Jazz has been captivating audiences across northeast Ohio for over four years. The trio has expanded to be a "trio of five" and includes the guitar stylings and vocals of Don Goodman, Herbert Pruitt on bass and vocals, Xavier Ali on trombone, Harry Baccus on drums and Sam Cabot on vocals, flute and saxophone.
