About Event

The Easley Quartet (The EQ) is a new collaboration of some of the most revered jazz players in Atlantic Canada. The group

features Tom Easley on bass, Mark Adam on drums, and the dual guitar attack of Geordie Haley and Kevin Brunkhorst.

With a sound that speaks to both classic jazz aficionados and fans of groove oriented artists like Medeski, Martin and Wood

and Bill Frisell, The EQ shines a new light on jazz while still honoring its tradition.

The EQ was formed by bassist Tom Easley (Hot Toddy)in 2017 when he enlisted a group of session players to perform a collection of

new original compositions for a series of shows. Driven by the success of these shows and the audience’s reaction, the

group entered the studio to record.

“The decision to record was fueled by an immediate distinctive sound and chemistry,” says Easley— a sound and chemistry

that is evident throughout the group’s debut album, The Starting Point vs The Steep Decline.

With 11 tracks that highlight the melodic writing of Easley, The Starting Point vs The Steep Decline was recorded live off the

floor by engineer Mike Ryan in the spring of 2018. Drawing from folk, rock, and jazz influences, it is immediately

evident that this album veers sharply to the left of the genre’s centre. Dirty guitar tones, hypnotic grooves, and a hint of

psychedelia work together seamlessly on The Starting Point vs The Steep Decline - but can’t begin to mask the stellar

musicianship beneath.

Adjust your standards – The EQ is not your standard jazz quartet.
