Peter Epstein Quartet

Reno's own Peter Epstein (Associate Professor and UNR’s Director of Jazz & Improvisational Music) and the members of his NYC-based quartet (Ralph Alessi – trumpet, Sam Minaie – bass, and Mark Ferber – drums) have released a critically acclaimed new album on Songlines Recordings, Polarities.

“…It’s music of a higher order that’s filled with endless surprises…expanding and contracting in fascinating ways.” (allaboutjazz.com)

“…It’s a controlled burn…Epstein never loses the lyricism that defines his style.” (Improvised blog)

“Saxophonist Peter Epstein is an open-ended conceptualist whose quartet's forays swell, storm and sidle off like a cinema collage of 24 hours in the life of a spring sky.” (Jazz Times Magazine)

Don't miss the Peter Epstein Quartet in concert in Reno, September 8, 2014, at UNR's Nightingale Concert Hall. Find Out More
