Cooke Quintet

Cooke Quintet celebrates the release of their newest album, an indefinite suspension of the possible, at Old First Concerts. Comprised of veteran Bay Area musicians who have worked with various contemporary music standouts such as ROVA, Fred Frith, Paulin Oliveros, Joan Jeanreaud and Paul Dresher, the Quintet presents a fresh twist on the classic jazz quintet. Combining stylistic influences from American and European jazz, the avant-garde, and diverse music from around the world with unusual instrumentation including woodwinds, trombone, ‘cello, percussion and koto, the Quintets approach to acoustic jazz allows for a new freedom of emotional expression.
