Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Quartet San Francisco (QSF) is very much in the vein of the Turtle Island String Quartet, though this classical crossover band sticks closer to their arrangements than the TISQ. Led by composer/arranger Jeremy Cohen on violin, the group also includes violinist Kayo Miki, violist Emily Onderdonk and cellist Joel Cohen. Their second CD draws from a wide swath of musical styles, including seven works by the quirky 1940s composer Raymond Scott, standards and show tunes, jazz, pop, funk and more. The playing is superb, with every song taking unpredictable turns, leaving the listener smiling. " -- Ken Dryden, All About Jazz

"The 18 short tracks include such Scott hits as Powerhouse, Boy Scout in Switzerland, The
Read more Penguin, Celebration on the Planet Mars, and The Toy Trumpet - probably his best-known tune. In addition, clever string quartet versions of tunes from Chick Corea, David Grisman, Ellington, Tower of Power, and even Leonard Bernstein are included. Corea’s Spain fits surprisingly well to the string quartet transcription, and loses little of its energetic swing. Tower of Power’s What Is Hip? brings the jazzy quartet program to a rousing close. Sonic quality is excellent, having been recorded at the low-noise-floor Skywalker Ranch north of San Francisco." -- John Henry, Audiophile Edition, September 2007
