Matt Aronoff, with Four Across at Tula’s Restaurant, Wednesday, October 22 & Thursday, October 23
One of the most promising jazz quartets now on the scene, Four Across makes its Earshot Jazz Festival debut presenting forward-thinking, sensitive jazz that blends folk melody, South American grooves, and New Orleans spirit. With Carmen Staaf on piano, Josh Deutsch on trumpet/flugelhorn, Kendall Eddy on bass, and Brian Adler on drums, this collection of New England Conservatory graduates, many with Seattle ties, released its first album, Four Across, earlier this year and is fresh off an east coast tour.
Bassist Kendall Eddy grew up in Arlington, VA, with stops in Bainbridge Island and Harrisonburg, VA. After studying acoustic bass at James Madison University, he completed a master’s degree at NEC, and now maintains a busy performing and teaching schedule. He has appeared in Japan, Norway, Italy, and across the United States.
