Ed Broms Quartet

Dedicated to performing and interpreting the complete works of major jazz artists, based of the exhaustive transcriptions of saxophonist/bassist and music director Timo Shanko, the Ed Broms Quartet is jazz repertory ensemble that formed in 2006. To date, the quartet has performed the complete recorded works of John Coltrane (400 distinct compositions) in a series of 40 concerts over 4 years from 2006 to 2010 with concerts at numerous venues around the Boston area. Also, in the summer of 2010, the Quartet performed the complete original compositions of Thelonious Monk (80 compositions) in a series of 8 concerts. Since then the Quartet has performed various concerts featuring the works of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, as well as compositions of Timo Shanko. The Quartet can be heard here in a live performance of Coltrane’s A Love Supreme suite at The Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Boston; featuring Jef Charland on bass and Luther Grey on drums. There are two recordings, one with overhead mics, and another with mics closer to the band.
