“Complex rhythms, deep soulful moments, rock and passion and sensitivity” is how Bebop Spoken Here describes The John Funkhouser Quartet. With influences as wide ranging as Woody Guthrie, Thelonious Monk, Frank Zappa, Frederic Chopin, Ravi Shankar, and Abdullah Ibrahim, the Quartet is a band of Musicians without Borders. Funkhouser’s latest compositions flow from a new influence – his 2016 tour of South Africa. Each of Funkhouser’s expansive compositions inhabits a unique universe, while the band seamlessly integrates composed music with improvisation into what Bop-n-Jazz.com describes as “a whirling dervish of sound and light”.
