“They plumb the union of jazz and classical styles with results that are melodic, crystalline and haunting.” –About: Jazz
Bringing together four uniquely defined voices of new music, jazz, and improvised composition, Gravitas Quartet explores the depths of texture, sonority, rhythm, and ensemble fluidity available to masters working with a broad palette. Wayne Horvitz (piano), Peggy Lee (cello), Sara Schoenbeck (bassoon), and Ron Miles (trumpet) have been hailed as harbingers of modern music—each emerges from a vast musical background to redefine the sonic landscape. Gravitas Quartet has two releases on the Songlines label, Way Out East (2006) and One Dance Alone (2008).
