An evening of truth and groove awaits as The TOaG Quartet performs live at Airship Laboratories Studio to record their second album.
As an assembly of instrumentalists - with Ricky Carter on drums, David Wright on guitar, Matt Kelly on trumpet, and Benjamin Lee on upright and electric bass - the TOaG Quartet is an Oakland based musical organization inspired by the many lineages of jazz and groove. Striving to be honest to who we are, where we have been, and where we hope to go, we pay homage to the work of our our elders - who laid the groundwork upon which we stand - while aspiring to spark the mind with truth, and move the spirit with groove. Alongside the tireless service of community music educators, TOaG also works to support arts education by curating jazz clinics for young students, creating a positive space for musical exchange between professionals and pupils.
