Jack Furlong Quartet

September 21 @ 8:00 pm

Preservation New Jersey and the New Jersey Jazz Society are pleased to welcome the Jack Furlong Quartet back to the 1867 Sanctuary with a mix of original works and unique arrangements.


The group includes baritone saxophonist Jack Furlong, Sean Gough on piano, Jon McElroy on bass, and John O’Keefe on drums.

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 Opportunity. For his album Charity, 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 performances 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.
