Jazz Around Town presents Stephanie Urquhart Quartet
Formed in 2014, the Stephanie Urquhart Quartet has performed across Canada, and has had their music featured in the 2017 and 2019 International Jazz Composer’s Symposiums in the United States of America.
Their debut album Concealment was nominated for Best Jazz Album by One World Music Awards. Reminiscent of Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Phronesis, Tigran Hamasyan, Concealment works on the boundaries between structurally determined and more freely improvised music, blending the melodic intimacy of traditional jazz music with modern complexities and virtuosic performances. Written as a reflection of her experiences with with depression, Concealment engages the listener with beautiful melodies and compositions telling Stephanie’s story about developing depression, and the healing and acceptance that followed.
