Based in Brooklyn and Toronto, guitarist and composer Avi Granite delivers pure flavor in the form of a quartet. His originals can move seamlessly from guitar solos to driving kit and evocative horn blends.
“”Avi Granite and his serpentine guitar, half-intellect, half-instinct, fatten up a whole new jazz sound… The music is at once cerebral and playful, unpretentious despite its backward cannonball jumps off the experimental diving board.” – Downbeat Magazine
“Thick ensemble work, strong shape-changing melody narratives, diverse textural colour and a kind of loose togetherness…” – CODA, 2008
The quartet members for this CD release of Avi Granite’s Verse – Snow Umbrellas, are:
- Ralph Alessi – trumpet
- Avi Granite – guitar
- Jerry DeVore – bass
