Adam Larson Quartet
Comprised of bandleader and saxophonist Adam Larson, pianist Steven Feifke, bassist Martin Nevin and drummer Jason Burger, the Adam Larson Quartet formed in 2008 as a result of the vibrant jazz scene in New York, and has been performing consistently ever since. Larson has led the group at venues in New York City such as The Jazz Gallery, The Blue Note, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, The Kitano, Smalls and several others across the Tri-State area, as well as internationally. An equal opportunist bandleader, Larson’s quartet draws upon the improvisational prowess and compositional skill of each band member. Performing primarily original music as well as select arrangements from composers around the world, the band finds influence from musicians as varied as John Coltrane, Bach, The Beatles, Maurice Ravel, and Snoop Dogg among others, all of whom contribute to the Quartet’s unique sound.
In addition to maintaining an impressive performing schedule, the band continues to be in demand as educators at institutions across the Globe. Currently, members of the Quartet are active Teaching Artists for institutions such as Jazz at Lincoln Center and The New York Pops “Pops Ed” program, as well as dedicated private studio and workshop teachers to students nationwide.
