B.A.Q. - 2015

"Award winning Trinidadian born, New York schooled jazz trumpet player Brownman Ali leads this modern jazz quartet through inspired arrangements of standards and choice originals.  The new generation of jazz."
          - Jazzonline.com reviewer

"Performing organic jazz in the classic trio or quartet setting, this unit strives to embody the jazz improvising spirit of the 60's - communication.  Playing selections of standards linked together in one organic mish-mash of sonic goodness, this unit brings classic jazz themes and powerful Brownman compositions into the new millenium"
          - Scott McLaren, CHRY radio
