Atlantis Quartet

Atlantis Quartet formed in 2006 and has emerged as one of the premier modern jazz groups in the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The group consists of four of Minnesota's most exciting jazz artists who have come together to create and explore fresh and original sounds on the modern edges of the jazz idiom.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
