Triple Dip Quartet *

The Triple Dip Quartet introduces the rebirth of cool jazz. More cerebral in nature, the band creates complex harmonies emphasizing the composer and arranger. Throw in a pinch of improvisation aimed more at creating a soothing tonal color than blazing virtuosity. Top it off with an emphasis on melodic development and interaction over overt emotionalism.

The result is a sound all its own; its “coolness” is a matter of emotional temperature. The Triple Dip Quartet and “cool jazz” offer an alternative aesthetic to the aggressive tempos and harmonic abstraction of other jazz forms. Think of Miles Davis’ “Birth of the Cool,” then combine it with Lester Young, Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Dave Brubeck and Don Ellis.
