About the event
Amy Shook is one of the most in-demand acoustic bassists in the mid- Atlantic, coveted for her huge sound and infectious, driving groove. In addition to being a premier performing and recording artist, and a multi-instrumentalist (acoustic bass, electric bass, violin, and viola) she is an accomplished composer and music educator, co-leads the Shook/Russo 4tet, and performs regularly with the all-women powerhouse trio the 3D Jazz Trio. The Shook/Russo Quartet (SR4tet), comprised of Amy Shook on bass, Pat Shook on tenor sax, Frank Russo on drums and Jonathan Epley on guitar, has been performing together for nearly 15 years in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area. Their focus has always been to compose and perform their own original music within the jazz idiom, honoring the masters by carrying on the tradition. The group has developed an incredible and unique sound by merging the diverse backgrounds of each of these fine musicians into one voice. The result is a whirlwind of grooves, melodies, and diverse textures that are a true delight to hear. Collectively, the members of the SR4tet have performed extensively throughout the United States, as well as performed in Canada, Mexico, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean, and at festivals such as the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, the Ottawa Jazz Festival, the Stan Getz Jazz Festival, the Cape May Jazz Festival and the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival and the Rochester International Jazz Festival to name a few.
