180 Gram Vinyl Record
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
