Joonbug: Fourplay with another Magical Performance

Blue Note NYC - December 2013-7

Jazz band Fourplay played at Blue Note Jazz Club all of last week, and we had the pleasure of checking them out Sunday night for their last NYC show. The light and soulful Jazz sounds were just the thing we needed, especially on these cold winter nights like we’ve been having. For those of you who have not been, the Blue Note boasts compact seating for an intimate experience, we suggest red wine and their delicious New York Cheesecake for the full effect. 

 All four musicians were extremely talented and complimented each other well blending their styles and showing their versatility playing both up-tempo and low-tempo songs.  Nathan East started the night off with his whispery scatting and holiday themed melodies which progressed seamlessly into hypnotizing Jazz breakdowns. At several times during the set we were completely engulfed in the rambunctious chord progressions and percussions.  Bob James delighted the audience with smooth and calming piano riffs interspersed with high energy sounds from the band. The verve of the whole performance was one that made you think of nothing but its many shining moments.

New York Daily News: Your Best Bet is Fourplay…

by on Dec.14, 2013, under News, Press &Reviews


Best bet

Jazz supergroup Fourplay is in the middle of a weeklong stand at the Blue Note. If you’re not familiar with them, think of them as a jazz Steely Dan, a collection of solid studio players with some rock inclinations.

The group features piano luminary Bob James, fresh off touring with David Sanborn on their “Quartette Humaine” album, bass player Nathan East, whose bassline to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” has swept the world, guitarist Chuck Loeb and drummer/producer Harvey Mason.

They’re in their 20th year together and their Blue Note shows tend to be a homecoming party. 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., $35

The New York Times is Jazzed about Fourplay

by on Dec.13, 2013, under News



Fourplay (Friday through Sunday) A few years ago the lineup of this contemporary-jazz supergroup changed significantly, as Larry Carlton vacated the guitar chair, making room for another suave technician, Chuck Loeb. The shift has worked seamlessly, like the interplay among the rest of the band: the keyboardist Bob James, the bassist Nathan East and the drummer Harvey Mason. Given the timing of this run, expect at least a nod to the band’s 1999 holiday album, “Snowbound.”

At 8 and 10:30 p.m., Blue Note, 131 West Third Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 475-8592,; $45 to $55 cover at tables, $30 to $35 at the bar, with a $5 minimum.
