Jack Furlong Quartet
January 20, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome back the Jack Furlong Quartet to the 1867 Sanctuary!
Jack Furlong is known as a performer, composer, arranger, woodwind doubler, and educator. A baritone saxophonist by trade, Jack diversifies his sound to other saxophones and woodwinds to achieve the proper tone color, mood, and musical message he hears and wishes to portray. Jack delights audiences with his wit and mastery at gigs, a talent that exudes from his albums, including the critically acclaimed And That Happened as well as his newest release, Charity, an album where all proceeds are donated to three different charities.
With cool phrasing and a simple, melodic approach, Jack credits his style as heavily influenced from a wide variety of jazz pioneers, citing Gerry Mulligan, Miles Davis, Count Basie, and John Coltrane as the parents of his sound; yet he notes that his technique is personalized for today’s jazz scene. Jack has been on stage alongside greats such as Phil Woods, Peter Nero, Jim McNeely and the late Mulgrew Miller. An accomplished performer, Jack leads his own quartet, aptly named The Jack Furlong Quartet, a name Furlong notes took a full weekend to conjure up.
The Quartet features Sean Gough (piano), Jon McElroy (bass), and John O’Keefe (drums). Their debut performance at the 1867 Sanctuary will feature a wide mix of selections encompassing their entire repertoire of original compositions and arrangements, including some old favorites, some modern hits, and even some new pieces yet to be heard. The selections will give the audience the perfect balance of past, present, and future when it comes to their brand of jazz.
