The Stoner

With extraordinary vitality, a fresh concept, a zest for creating new music, The Stoner are turning a new page for jazz. They have something new for the heart, the head and the feet. The Stoner are a traditionally set up jazz quartet - saxophone, piano, bass, drums - and they know all about the jazz tradition. Their concept absorbs new urban and popular musics, and uses it to inspire new jazz. They make the Nordic electronic Nu-jazzers sound antique...” - Roger Spence, Edinburgh Jazz Festival.
