On Friday, April 8th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to present the OGJB Quartet featuring saxophonist Oliver Lake, cornetist Graham Haynes, bassist Joe Fonda, and percussionist Barry Altschul. The group is a collaborative endeavor and each member contributes compositions to their repertoire.

Oliver Lake "stands at the top of his profession alongside such giants as his contemporaries, multi-instrumentalists Anthony Braxton, and Roscoe Mitchell" (Robert Bush, All About Jazz). Altschul "is associated with the avant-garde terrains of jazz but his own compositions maintain a deep [connection] to bop structure and harmonic movement" (Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz).

All of the members of the OGJB Quartet are veterans of improvised music globally with hundreds of performances with a diverse range of performers all over the world including The World Saxophone Quartet, Bill Dixon, Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Michael Musillami, Jon Irabagon, and many others.
