“Quadrologues” is the second Clean Feed release by the New York based quartet Transit. This collection of pieces integrates the tradition of jazz and the never obvious approaches to music. Each piece reveals an intelligent design with a clarity of purpose. Static and the hyper activity of free-jazz are equal partners in Transit's compositions. Falling in and out of tradition - Transit has created it's own "thumbprint" that reveals an individual sensitivity within a group consciousness.
Jeff Arnal (percussion),
Seth Misterka (alto saxophone),
Reuben Radding (double bass) and
Nate Wooley (trumpet)
contribute choices in the moment - Impulse - Silence – Response - from a rich palette of individual style within a non linear structure.
Each moment is unique and unpredictable.

Quadrologues can count itself as apart of a new emerging music - unknown sounds of the 21st century.

This collective is informed by decades of experimentation in the trenches of the Avant Garde. Full of risk but quick to reveal the importance of cooperation and the synergy of true dialogue.

In conclusion: this music creates an innovative landscape that mirrors the complexities of the environment from which it emerged.
