Josh Deutsch 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.
Trumpeter, composer, and fellow Seattleite, Josh Deutsch performs in a variety of musical settings, including the Josh Deutsch Quinet and Poisonous Birds, a quintet that specializes in jazz/rock/funk fusion. While at NEC he studied with Danilo Perez, Bob Brookmeyer, John McNeil, Allan Chase, and Lee Hyla, and he is currently pursuing a master’s degree in jazz performance and composition at the University of Oregon.
