Great rhythm section, big fun ahead! Originals and some tweaked standards. Good food, nice town, what’s not to like?

Most colorful review of latest album:
“JJQ’s two-tenor chemistry broadcasts micro-brewed cool with daring flair and dazzling magic, quicksilver bop sopped in swinging ba-da-bings spun from unpredictable rhythms and rich wind-blown tones. Trembling, blending and disassembling, “Moxie,” unlocks a simmering hornet’s nest of hot mess coalescing intuitive grooves from dueling schools, shadowy solos crawling through marinated menageries like cobras eloping with bipolar ghosts.” – Maximum Ink.com

Runner up:
“… predictably unpredictable, grounded yet far-reaching, and irresistibly intriguing in its unfolding. The tenors move along with a combination of patience and attitude, enhancing the underlying feel with their cool-headed, hot-blooded moves…a program that’s both unrestrained and structurally sound.”
– All About Jazz.com

Best old school review:
“Their latest effort is a chordless marvel, a lean and grooving program of six tunes that maintains a taut liveliness from beginning to end.”
– Brian Zimmerman, Downbeat magazine
