Bill Coon Double Quartet
Inspiring musical departures
Guitarist Bill Coon’s CD “Departure” is a project that combines the lyricism and expressiveness of a string quartet with the rhythmic drive and soloing brilliance of a jazz quartet.
The Bill Coon Double Quartet is a true departure for Coon as the music marries his love of jazz improvising with his passion for arranging and composition. Jazz greats Jim Hall and Wes Montgomery influenced the guitar style, while the style of Bill Evans, Kenny Wheeler, and Maurice Ravel inspired much of the writing. The brilliant Brad Turner contributes fiercely creative and melodic solos on trumpet/flugelhorn.
Rounding out the ensemble are Paul Rushka bass, Bernie Arai drums, Cam Wilson and Yule Yawney violins, Llowyn Ball viola, and Finn Manniche cello.
