Roger Beaujolais Quartet

Vibes player Roger Beaujolais’ influences are the small bands, hard bop and cool school of the Fifties. His quartet celebrates their recent release by playing new arrangements of standards and music from their new album Sunset. Roger’s music gives a huge nod to the sounds of the Blue Note label, and the quartet has worked together for so long that people often comment about the telepathy of the musicians.
