Duo: 6:30 to 8:30 // Dale Fielder Quartet: 9:00 & 10:30
The Dale Fielder Quartet, called the DFQ, is celebrating their 20th Anniversary with the release of their latest CD, Resilience.
The DFQ consists of Dale Fielder-baritone sax, the legendary ex-Mingus Workshop pianist Jane Getz, Bill Markus-bass and Thomas White-drums. The DFQ first garnered international attention back in 1996 with their first CD: “Dear Sir: Tribute To Wayne Shorter” which enjoyed the full support of Mr. Shorter and remained on the top ten jazz charts for over 3 months. They were also BET’s 1999 “Jazz Discovery” and performed their own hour TV show that continues to play today. Over the subsequent years, the DFQ has performed at concerts, festivals and venues throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia as well as recording six CDs as a unit. Their last two CDs “Baritone Sunride” and “DFQ Plays The Music of Pepper Adams” were both big sellers that attracted a lot of attention for the band.
