Hot New Local Singles: The Neighborhood Quartet

The Neighborhood Quartet has been a beneath-the-radar Twin Cities mainstay for years, providing their sound on stages all across the metro. I was elated when I found out they were taking the step into commercially releasing an album, and when I heard the tune “Hey Fellas,” I knew they had found their stride. The tune is a joyous, casual sipper, with the relaxed gait of a group that moves to their own tempo. If you are looking for an ensemble that will leave you in deep contemplation for hours after the record is done spinning, LOOK ELSEWHERE! If, however, you want to hear a vibraphone-fronted quartet with some of the most groove and pocket-oriented players from our scene delivering inspired originals that sound like immediate classics, I’d say just stay in the Neighborhood.

Hot New Local Singles highlights new, local songs. Minnesota has a lot of great jazz, funk, soul, and jazz- adjacent music. Jazz88 is highlighting what is fresh.
