Album Notes
Combining the improv and personality of modern jazz and American popular music with the rigor and sophistication of the chamber music tradition, the second release of this quartet (clarinet, accordian, electric guitar, trombone) mixes dense compositions and covers as diverse as XTC and Chopin.

George Spelvin -- Programmer, George's Jungle Internet Radio

Great CD!
Offshore has a very unique, even quirky at times. Most enjoyable!


Refreshing, fun, and original
Playful, fun, textured, and quite original. This is very refreshing to listen to, and sounds nothing like what I've heard elsewhere. The performances are excellent and the compositions copy no one. If anything, the depth could be expanded with percussion, even though it might slightly dilute the originality.

Mira Finelli, New Age Music Review

Very interesting music!
I would say that this music has some jazz influence, yet I would not call it jazz. What I heard is a mix of contemporary classical and smooth jazz. Live instruments sound clean and good together. Performance is very masterful, with a warm feeling, and compositions are fascinating.
But have you thought about inviting a drummer? I believe that would be swell.
Also you do need to post more info about your "Four bags" on the CDBaby page. I hope my comments were helpful.


Good ear stretchers
It is really nice to hear good musicians devote their time to risky music like this. Being a fan of the Amestoy group from Europe, the 4 Bags put them to shame as far as technical skills go. Glad I foung you guys
