Liner notes
Zack Foley Quartet
"One of the most sublime and delightful finds on New York City’s youth-infused jazz scene is the Zack Foley Quartet. The combo can shift in mode or mood with felicity, from beguilingly relaxed to heavy improv to what they call their signature Zen-like 'jazz/rock/chant.' Foley’s attitude is ironic, defying romantic convention. He strips away the neat sentiments we associate with jazz standards and exposes the bare meaning—even artifice—at their root. The result is to reveal songs as small treasures, often tinged with the acknowledgment and acceptance of loss, songs that sparkle amid the otherwise cynical cacophony of the age. There is a depth of spiritual wisdom, psychic insight and struggle, and meditative practice that inform the music, throughout." - Vanity Fair

Zack Foley Quartet

We're just playing jazz. Jazz is simply an approach, a spirit, where anything can happen in the music, where anyone can play anything at anytime.
Because we all trust each other and care about each other, we are there to support one another and flow as a river.
