Pianist Marc Riordan's Quartet with fellow Chicago players Daniel Thatcher (bass), Tim Daisy (drums) and Brooklyn's Peter Hanson on alto sax, energetic modern jazz balancing dissonance and cacophony with swinging, tuneful melody

Riordan Quartet, Marc

Riordan Quartet, Marc: Binoculars (Club Nerodia)
Label: Club Nerodia    
Released in: USA    

"The debut release from the Marc Riordan Quartet, a creative jazz unit that has been refining its sound in front of Chicago audiences since 2009. Featuring Brooklyn based Peter Hanson (alto sax) alongside Chicagoans Marc Riordan (piano), Daniel Thatcher (bass) and Tim Daisy (drums), Binoculars travels a diverse terrain of energy music, free bop, and straight ahead, balancing dissonance and cacophony with swinging, tuneful melody."

"Marc Riordan might have made a name for himself as a drummer, but with Binoculars, he stands in danger of being known as a drummer fourth, after pianist, composer and bandleader. It's a real possibility, because he does those three things all so well."-S. Victor Aaron, SOMETHING ELSE!
