    Esthesis Quartet plays original music with a reckless abandon that shakes the preconceptions of traditional instrumentation roles. The group approaches collaboration with understanding, respect, and a brave commitment to spontaneity and sonic exploration. Esthesis, by definition, means elementary sensations of touch. This is in reference to the missed human contact collectively experienced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Esthesis Quartet was formed during this time, initially as a composition support group to keep the creative juices flowing via remote recording projects. When it felt safe to connect in person, we gathered in Los Angeles to perform and record this album. 

    Elsa Nilsson – Flute, Dawn Clement – Piano, Emma Dayhuff – Bass, Tina Raymond – Drums

    Described as “an intrepid composer, architect of sound and beast of the bass…” (Brad Cohan, NYC Jazz Record) composer-bassist Max Johnson creates complex worlds of sound, challenging his listeners to engage deeply and be rewarded with an experience always crafted with love, care, and clarity. With nine albums and over two thousand concerts internationally with artists like Anthony Braxton, Mary Halvorson, Tyshawn Sorey, John Zorn, and Mivos Quartet, Johnson brings a wild energy and excitement. For this concert, Johnson will be presenting an exciting new quartet, featuring Alfredo Colon, Kazmende George, and Connor Parks performing new and revived works, imbued with an electrifying energy.

    Flamenco takes on American jazz repertoire, from broadway tunes to music by Coltrane.
    Ten strings in perfect equilibrium, their players sharing melodic and percussive duties.
    Standards in a way you’ve never heard them.
    Andreas Arnold – flamenco guitar
    Manel Fortia – double bass
