ArÍte Quartet

Electronic, Jazz, Funk

ArÍte Quartet is a groove-oriented acid jazz ensemble, borrowing from downtempo, straight ahead jazz, funk, punk, Brazilian and other styles. With a respectful nod towards the traditions of jazz, Joe Doria (keyboards) makes detours into electronica, trip-hop and controlled maelstrom, all the while parrying and playing off long-time collaborator and melodic master Dave Carter (trumpet). Ranging from a whisper to a scream, the band is capable of amazing subtlety and improvisation.
