Alexander Brott New York Quartet

Alexander Brott is a Swedish/Canadian jazz guitarist and composer who divides his time between Europe and New York where he plays with some of the world’s finest jazz musicians. Hailed as a virtuoso of jazz of the 40/50’s with role models such as Tadd Dameron, Duke Ellington, Mary Lou Williams and Elmo Hope, this young guitarist composes original music that has been described as both “classic” and “timeless” as well as “fresh and innovative”.

This quartet features some of New York’s most creative voices on the contemporary bebop scene who collectively have played with legends such as Barry Harris, Lou Donaldson, Freddie Redd and Betty Carter. Last year they released their first album together, “The Aesthetic Attitude”, which has been celebrated by critics around the world, received accolades from many prominent jazz musicians and led to Brott receiving an award from the Swedish Composers Guild.

“Alexander Brott is one of my favorite young players on the scene. His playing is so pure in terms of where he’s coming from and also how personal his approach is. This album is a beautiful representation of his elegant playing and his fantastic writing. Every tune is masterfully constructed and a perfect vehicle for this amazing band. All of these great musicians are playing from a place of empathy and love. This a great record!!” – Peter Bernstein

“Absolute top-class jazz guitar” – Dalademokraten

“Brott is a master of the guitar, a virtuoso” – La Habitación del Jazz

“[Brott’s] fluid, bop-based lines are reminiscent of the best of a golden era that turned the jazz world upside down as it rewrote the music’s vocabulary (…) There is, in fact, nothing about The Aesthetic Attitude that is less than admirable, from the writing and choice of musicians to the performance itself. 4 stars “ – All About Jazz
