Recorded in The Brain and Creativity Institute's Cammilleri Hall at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

"This band of young jazz musicians follows in the classy-cool tradition of Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a tastefull swinging late '50s-early '60s outfit led by a principal creator of the West Coast sound. ... It gives one the feeling of having a ringside seat at an intimate jazz club." — The Absolute Sound

"More jazz records should be like Sophisticated Lady Quartet, relaxed yet focused, tradition-based yet modern, elegant yet conveying a sure sense of swing. The recording is so pure that you almost feel as if you're eavesdropping on four musicians who seem completely in their element while performing, in a one-take environment, a set that's evenly split between previously rehearsed arrangements and performances where they had one chance to turn a composition into a memorable piece of music. No splicing or editing here, just a live-in-the-studio recording where the mood, playing and sonics are so solid that that jazz lovers will wish that the mostly-classical label Yarlung wandered over to this side of the street more often. — Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound
