“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 describes as “a whirling dervish of sound and light”.

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.
