juilliard jazz quartet
With Ron Carter, bass, Ron Blake, saxophone; Frank Kimbrough, piano; Carl Allen, drums
With a faculty ensemble filled with first call musicians and a certified legend it’s no wonder the Julliard jazz program has climbed to world renown in its relatively short existence. The hard work of drummer Carl Allen as both anchor of the group and artistic director of jazz studies is quite evident both at the school and on any stage where this quartet plays. The presence of bassist Ron Carter just makes everything majestic with pianist Frank Kimbrough and saxophonist Ron Blake rounding out the quartet.
