“The band’s playing sounds fine, tasty and functional. Ideas are being developed in an interesting way, and the titles have been shaped like songs, which is not always given in the free improvisation scene.” – Toni Honkala, Riffi

Markus Pesonen Guitar
Tom Arthurs Trumpet
Miles Perkin Contrabass
Janne Tuomi Drums and Percussion

The quartet propose something of the finest of what is rapidly emerging as a new form of real-time composed/improvised music-making – unlimited by concept or dogma, and proposing beauty and sensuality as opposed to the mechanical coldness and harsh juxtapositions of earlier forms. These are four musicians listening and reacting at the highest level - reveling in both the range of influences available to them and also in the depth with which these are explored. As well as being unapologetic jazz musicians, all are experienced composers, and they bring these experiences in form and detail to their extemporisations. Roots are clear – traces of reductionism, spectralism, European jazz history, Americana and electro-acoustic music remain – but in a way entirely personal to these four individuals, and their combination in this group.

QUAIRÓS is a band with a fresh and commanding sound, and a group who transmit a quiet intensity and warm humanity with a clarity and joy otherwise rare in today's improvised music.
