Anthony Crescente Quartet

Saturday - January, 25 @ 10:00pm

Anthony Crescente is a jazz guitarist, educator, and composer from the Boston area. His style incorporates language from the worlds of bebop, blues, and jazz, while being influenced by such greats as Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, and Joe Pass. His newest performing group, The Anthony Crescente Quartet, features Alex Peabody on saxophone, Shourin Sen on bass, and Greg Shannon on drums. The four talented jazz artists all contribute their unique perspectives on improvisational music while performing a variety of Crescente's original compositions along side jazz, blues, and bebop classics. Their performances reflect the tradition of the jazz idiom while taking the music to new and exciting places!
