About us

 

Big Sky Quartet, four kindred spirits with a wealth of musical experience and talent have turned their backs to the London scene and have put down roots in the Welsh Borders, creating their own blend of self-penned lyrical tunes propelled along by distinctively Brazilian and world rhythms. Happily following in the giant steps of musicians like Weather Report, Joe Lovano and Chick Corea, Big Sky are producing an accessible, melodic jazz fusion that is picking up new fans wherever they play.

What others think

"Just listened to the clips, you guys should be at Ronnie's or 606. Serious. The way you guys play is how it's meant to be done I reckon. Drama, exciting, interesting satisfying harmony, just great music and great playin'. Put me down for a cd and lemme know when next gig is."
