ESQ (Extra Sonic Quartet)

Combine some of the San Francisco Bay Area's most individually creative young jazz musicians in one ensemble and push out the boundaries of groove jazz and you have ESQ. Incorporating latin, acid, fusion and traditional straight-ahead jazz, ESQ will keep your foot tapping and your head tripping.
