TURTLE ISLAND QUARTET - BIRTH OF THE COOL
Birth of the Cool
Turtle Island shows the world how a string quartet plays jazz by employing their signature groove-based rhythmic techniques to transform classic selections from Miles Davis’ Cool Jazz recording, Birth of the Cool. Israel, Venus De Milo, and Jeru become jazz string quartet masterpieces. The Quartet explore other perennial favorites such as Dave Brubeck’s Blue Rondo a la Turk, Gerry Mulligan’s Bernie’s Tune, Miles Davis’ dreamy Miles Ahead, and the Modern Jazz Quartet’s darker Django.
