Four of the worlds most respected musicians come together for a scintillating night of jazz in 1990… live from New York’s Sweet Basil, one of the most prestigious and historic jazz clubs anywhere!

This state-of-the art production marks the first time these legendary musicians have played together on the same stage.

“Their exquisite ensemble playing. ..provides us with an exhilarating evening of jazz.” – SWING JOURNAL/Japan

The show’s theme song, Ron Carter’s It’s About Time, and original works by the other featured players, were created especially for this event.
