Winners of two South Arts Jazz Roads Touring Grants and a South Arts Jazz Roads Creative Residency Grant, Quarteto's master musicians create emotionally charged soundscapes with instruments and sensibilities that represent very different world cultures. Their unique instrumentation – soprano saxophone (Damon Zick), cello (Jacob Szekely), guitar (Kenton Youngstrom) and percussion (Felipe Fraga) – richly colors their wide-ranging repertoire, from Chick Corea's Children's Song No. 6 to Mark O'Connor's Appalachia Waltz to Traditional Macedonian Gadjarsko, and original works Hector, Desmond, and Titus, Rain Song, and Dizer O Que.

This performance will feature works from their newest large-scale composition Jazz Road Suite: Western States.

About Quarteto Nuevo

Quarteto Nuevo merges Western classical, Eastern European folk, Latin and jazz with an organic feel that packs a wallop! The ensemble’s razor-sharp precision is enhanced by jazzy interludes, lightly rumbling percussion motifs and mesmerizing rhythms. They effectively meld the music of ancient worlds and faraway places with a contemporary groove that enchants audiences of all ages.
