JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2015 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

High Definition Quartet at Rochester International Jazz Festival

As we were leaving the Lutheran Church I heard someone describe the High Definition Quartet from Poland as "a little too off beat for me." Actually I found them a little too on the beat in a precision kind of mathematical way. They finished and punctuated each other's lines, creating parts with the combinations, jazz without all that much swing, a sound our friend, Jeff, called "a little too heady." They were but in a really interesting way. The pianist took a really unusual but beautiful solo.
