In 1997, Jim Gailloreto embarked on a new project called Jazz String Quintet. It is an integration of both jazz and classical music written for string quartet and soprano saxophone. Inspired by sources as diverse as Debussy and Ravel to Miles Davis and John Coltrane, composer and saxophonist Jim Gailloreto offers a perfect blend of classical music and jazz: structure and spontaneity. The compositions interweave his own soprano saxophone with skilled modernist writing for string quartet. “No composer has shaped the structures and layered the phrases of the string quartet to so successfully accommodate full-tilt improvisation,” writes jazz authority Neil Tesser
