2nd Set With Andy Brown Quartet

Showtimes:   6pm-7:15pm & 8:15pm-9:30pm

Bandleader Andy Brown has been one of the busiest guitarists in Chicago over the last two decades, leading his own bands and backing visiting jazz stars all over the city, as well traveling nationally and internationally with a variety of groups. He specializes in what he calls “old-school jazz guitar.”

The Andy Brown Quartet brings together four of the finest jazz musicians on the Chicago scene. Featuring Andy on guitar, Jeremy Kahn on piano, Joe Policastro on bass and Phil Gratteau on drums, this quartet combines the member’s shared musical inspirations and presents a lyrical and hard-swinging working band that has delighted audiences and critics alike. As a group they have performed weekly at Andy’s Jazz Club since 2012. Their Delmark records release Direct Call received 4 stars in Downbeat Magazine and was selected as one of the magazine’s Albums of the Year. Their latest recording is the 2023 release Good Atmosphere.

In a performance review the Chicago Tribune’s jazz critic wrote: "Inspiring music-making isn't necessarily loud, aggressive, self-aggrandizing or heavily promoted. Consider what happens every Sunday night at Andy's Jazz Club, where the superb but serenely understated Chicago guitarist Andy Brown leads a quartet. Like him, his bandmates speak softly but poetically. Brown's pastel tones, softly stated melody lines and delicately rolled chords conveyed remarkable intimacy.”
