Quentin Bryan Angus: In Stride

Barry O'Sullivan By

Sign in to view read count
Keeping 'in stride' on his journey from Eden Valley, South Australia, guitarist/composer Quentin Bryan Angus hasn't batted an eyelid since arriving in the world's Mecca for jazz in 2010. Angus is an Associate Professor of Music for the City University of New York, teaches several courses at the Borough of Manhattan Community College and holds a PhD (Phrasing and Polyrhythm in Contemporary Jazz Guitar), plus a Master of Music Degree in Jazz Performance.

He has also received national and international recognition for both his guitar playing and composing. On this latest outing Angus leads a stellar trio featuring fellow New Yorker Ari Hoenig on drums and the Australian bassist Sam Anning. With tunes from Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery, Oasis and the New York rock band Goo Goo Dolls plus four of his original compositions, Angus excels technically and creatively with a fine sense of groove, forming a unit which is tight and funky with members extremely comfortable in each other's company.

Stand out tracks include "Wonderwall" and "One For Bernie,"  but no matter how technical his lines might get, Angus executes them on these and the rest with smooth, authoritative precision. Skillful recording, mixing and mastering have all contributed immensely to the effect of this fine collection of original compositions and covers played by artists who possess great integrity and understanding of the music and their instruments.

Track Listing: Jingles; Iris; In Stride; One for Bernie; Segment; Droplets; Wonderwall; Kinship.

Personnel: Quentin Angus: guitar; Sam Anning: bass; Ari Hoenig: drums.
