Mirko Guerrini’s Horizontal Quartet brings together four bandleaders and composers; with saxophonist Guerrini joined by pianist Andrea Keller, double bassist Tamara Murphy, and drummer Niko Schauble.
Horizontality as the main musical approach. You will hear all original music, mostly written exclusively for this band, where the four players are treated like single voices, part of a polyphonic ensemble. Harmonic content is created by the horizontal movement of the voices, and the high degree of interaction between the four musicians will blend everything together”. They have released an album from their 2020 MJC Online concert, available on Bandcamp.
Andrea Keller’s ongoing Monday night residency at the Jazzlab delivers a varied program including the Masters & Apprentices series, Five Below, the Composers Circle, Piano Club, Celebrating Voice and more.
This week is the return of her new quartet PATSy featuring Flora Carbo (saxophone), Callum Mintzis (trombone), Steve Grant (accordion) & Andrea Keller (piano)

Expect fire, swing, groove, Latin tinges, and a musical taste of Melbourne!
Melbourne-based Joe Chindamo is considered a world class jazz pianist, whose individual sound and style has won him many accolades and an international reputation that has seen him perform at such prestigious venues and events as Umbria Jazz Festival, The Tokyo Dome and The Lincoln Centre in New York.
Andy Sugg has played and recorded all around the world. Tonight his group plays originals from his last three albums, all recorded in New York City. Making tonight’s gig even more special, joining him in the group are some of the musicians who played on those albums.
Andy’s stellar group features Brett Williams on piano, Yunior Terry on bass and Danny Fischer on drums. The music is contemporary acoustic fusion at its best.
