1 I might go! Add to calendar 2013-02-15 2013-02-15 35 Turtle Island Quartet with Tierney Sutton at Jazz Bakery's Movable Feast Series at Zipper Hall, Colburn School ONE SHOW ONLY - NO INTERMISSION!

Turtle Island, the double GRAMMY winning quartet that has re-defined chamber jazz for over twenty five years, is joined by the great jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton in a series of concerts that answers the simple question: What inspires us?

This historic collaboration overflows with inspiration. From the moving traditional hymn Wade in the Water to Joni Mitchell's All I Want to settings of Coltrane's A Love Supreme and words of Hafiz and Rumi- Poets & Prayers celebrates the muse, in all its forms.

The Turtle Island Quartet has been hailed by The Washington Post for their "excellent precision and musicality." With numerous awards, including two GRAMMY's, and major appearances in the great concert halls of the world, the Turtle Island Quartet continues their long history of collaborations with outstanding guest artists. Tierney Sutton is now included in the ranks of Turtle Island guest artists- a list that also features the Assad Duo, Paquito d'Rivera, Kenny Barron, Stefon Harris, the Ying Quartet, Michael Doucet, and Cyrus Chestnut, among others.

Vocalist Tierney Sutton's celebrated career has included multiple GRAMMY nominations, appearances at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and the Hollywood Bowl, and a series of well regarded recordings. JazzTimes says Sutton's brilliance is her ability to blend seamlessly and The New York Times called her "a pure jazz spirit."
