"Billy Hart has been a coveted drummer for decades...His open-ended, direct technique opens up the msuic and the other soloists...makes few expected moves."

Billy Hart Quartet with Mark Turner, Ethan Iverson, and Ben Street

Featuring: Billy Hart - drums
Mark Turner - tenor saxophone
Ethan Iverson - piano
Ben Street - bass

An powerful peer of Tony Williams and Jack DeJohnette, Billy Hart has come into his own as a bandleader.

His rugged quartet featuring three younger iconoclastic musicians has a new record coming out on ECM, All Our Reasons.

Their previous record, Quartet was chosen as "10 Best records of 2006" by both K. Leander Williams at Time Out/New York (number one) and Nate Chinen at the New York Times (number ten).
