Amazing performance by Fourplay at the San Javier Jazz Festival 2017, featuring Bob James, Nathan East, Harvey Mason, Kirk Whalum.
Fourplay lost its beloved guitarist, musical composer and soulmate Chuck Loeb in 2017. Grammy-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum has replaced Loeb in the Fourplay lineup, bringing his exquisite ability to the immense talents of bassist Nathan East, keyboardist Bob James and drummer Harvey Mason.
Fourplay remains one of the genre’s best-ever contemporary jazz bands and for over a quarter century, the legend of this seminal group has grown as it always is pushing the idiom forward in both its jazz and pop directions.
Exploring the limitless possibilities of jazz has allowed the quartet to evolve musically, drawing elements from a wide range of styles to hone its own unique, innovative and uncompromising sound.
It is the musical exploration that keeps the journey going as Fourplay continues to be one of the most intuitive, forward-thinking and focused groups in modern jazz.
