The new Kristen Strom Quartet album, "Sojourn" released!

"This CD by The Kristen Strom Quartet reflects the evolution of four superb players whose musical comraderie began more than 20 years ago and has never stopped evolving. They paint from a rich palette of musical colors that includes every dimension from gentle, intuitive interplay to excitingly kinetic energy, and all the time reflecting the interplay and intuitive dialogue that those 20 years together have produced. What's happening in today's jazz? Among other things THE KRISTEN STROM QUARTET is. Enjoy it." - Bud Spangler, Jazz Guy.

"It floats, swings, and touches on samba, and each track has a gem-like solo by the leader." -Richard Scheinin, San Jose Mercury News
