Arranger: Portico Quartet.
On its debut CD, KNEE DEEP IN THE NORTH SEA, Mercury Prize-nominated combo the Portico Quartet delivers an unusually meditative brand of world music-influenced jazz that matches a minimalist classical music vibe with a pop/jam band-informed compositional sense. Centered on repeated figures played on the hang (a type of steel drum) and soprano saxophonist Jack Wylie's Wayne Shorter-esque improvisational explorations, Portico Quartet's music should appeal to fans of Weather Report and the Dave Matthews Band alike.
