Led by jazz pianist Darrell Grant, the MJ New Quartet is a virtuoso quartet who revisit the introspective elegance and sophisticated soundscape of the Modern Jazz Quartet. Rooted in the cultural diversity of the 1920's Harlem Renaissance, the MJQ deftly melded Bach fugues, American song, mid-century modernism, and the blues into a sound unlike any other. Following the lead of these masters, MJ New’s blend of classical and jazz imagines a distinctly new sound. Darrell Grant’s MJ New Quartet includes Bay Area-based bassist/composer Marcus Shelby, Portland vibraphonist Mike Horsfall, and Pacific Northwest drummer Carlton Jackson.
