The Miami Saxophone Quartet
& The University of Miami Frost School of Music Stamps Quintet
Saturday, November 23, 2013 – 8-11 p.m.
Hollywood ArtsPark, 1 Young Circle, Hollywood FL

Downtown Hollywood’s ArtsPark at Young Circle will host The Miami Saxophone Quartet and special guests The University of Miami Frost School of Music’s Stamps Quintet in a free, all-ages concert under the stars on Saturday, November 23, 8-11 p.m.

 World-renowned jazz masters Gary Keller, Gary Lindsay, Ed Calle, and Mike Brignola, known collectively as The Miami Saxophone Quartet, have created a contemporary sound unique among saxophone quartets, incorporating their home city’s wildly diverse cultural influences and exploring the realms of Jazz, Pop, Latin, R&B, and chamber music. Performing both originals and their own arrangements of songs from a diverse array of musical legends, including John Coltrane, Paul Simon, Pat Metheny, James Taylor, Thad Jones, and Chucho Valdes, the quartet’s performances appeal to audiences of all ages and persuasions. In 2013, MSQ released its fifth CD Four of a Kind, recorded live in concert.

The quartet will be augmented by a top-notch rhythm section, and opening the show will be the University of Miami Frost School of Music’s Stamps Quintet, featuring tomorrow’s jazz luminaries. Lawn seating is available and guests can bring a blanket or lawn chair.
