STRAIGHT
AHEAD


THE HONOLULU JAZZ QUARTET TURNS 20

Like a twenty-year-old Scotch, the Honolulu Jazz Quartet has matured into a rich, complex, mellow smokiness that goes down easy but still packs a wallop.
  Don’t add any mixers to it.  You’ll want to enjoy it straight. . .ahead.

 


REMEMBRANCE  / LIVE AT THE TRIPLE DOOR

The Honolulu Jazz Quartet

 

Released on the HJQ's 10th Anniversary, this album highlights the quartet at its best, recorded during their West Coast tour in 2007.

The haunting bonus track, "Remembrance" features vocalist Anita Hall in a tribute to the families of the victims of 9/11.

TENACITY

Honolulu Jazz Quartet

Nearly three and a half years after the Honolulu Jazz Quartet’s debut recording “Sounds of the City”, the HJQ is now releasing its new CD, “Tenacity”. HJQ leader John Kolivas says the title track is about the experience of living in difficult times and dealing with things such as illness, natural disasters and old age. “It takes tenacity to hold on and not give up on life.”
 
"The Honolulu Jazz Quartet - through its performances at the Hawaii International Jazz Festival, the Honolulu Symphony Pops, and jazz venues throughout Hawaii - is ready to be recognized in jazz scenes throughout the world, as is manifestly, invigoratingly evident in 'Sounds of the City' and now 'Tenacity.'
- Nat Hentoff, author "Jazz Is", "The Jazz Life", Listen to the Stories", and "American Music Is"
