The Wild Call of the Multi-Tasker

Album Notes

The Aaron Koppel Quartet is a local Chicago jazz ensemble lead by guitarist Aaron Koppel. Born and raised on the North Side of Chicago, Aaron started playing guitar at age eleven and has been composing music virtually his entire life.
Performing together since 2004, the quartet consists of Chicago natives pianist Matt Nelson, bassist Graham Czach, and drummer Robert Tucker. The quartet is a unique bop-driven force that can only be described as what it is: another new exit off the highway of jazz. AKQ infuses the styles of jazz, soul, Latin, fusion, funk and world music. Koppel’s compositions are inspired by the writings of Dave Holland and Avishai Cohen. JazzChicago.net coined AKQ as “a group of stellar up-and-coming young Chicago jazz artists...some of the best young players (and composers) the city has to offer” JazzChicago.net, 2009.

“Aaron Koppel and company… have produced a lovely, lively collection marked by intelligent writing, emotional depth, and sterling musicianship.” -Neil Tesser (Chicago Reader, Playboy, Jazz Times, USA Today, Chicago Sun-times, Rolling Stone)

In 2007, the AKQ released their debut album “The Wild Call of the Multi-Tasker” recorded by Grammy-nominated producer/engineer Greg Magers. The album received high acclaim. “The Wild Call… kept me ‘til the end!” Bobby Broom, 2007. Their debut album continues to receive local and international radio play. With the release of their first album, the AKQ has been able to establish a solid fan base which has given the group the opportunity of playing a variety of Chicago’s finest venues and music festivals.
