About the album

Artvark Saxaphone Quartet
Rolf Delfos: Alto sax / Bart Wirtz: Alto sax / Mete Erker: Tenor sax /
Peter Broekhuizen: Baritone sax

Is not profound beauty most striking when this beauty has arisen from sincere and genuine emotions? When what is conceived in the minds of earthlings is being perceived as higher art by its audience? Do we want to ignore the rancidity of the artist or is his compulsive quest through fire and brimstone a profoundness in its own right? A heavenly result through earthly perseverance. Rooting through mud for that one exquisite truffle.

What is the power of Artvark? All four members combine their love for jazz with tremendous feel for groove & soul and all four have performed at the highest level: check the individual bios. ASQ plays original compositions and arrangements written by the members, which demonstrate the versatility and originality of Delfos, Wirtz, Erker and Broekhuizen. The quartet plays with great agility and move around the stage: all music is played by heart and some of it is quite complex, we can tell you! This gives an extra dimension to the music, since they can concentrate on the moment, the audience and on each other, which opens up new possibilities everytime they play.

A heavenly result through earthly perseverance. Rooting through mud for that one exquisite truffle. Artvark is a phantastic and passionate saxophone quartet and this is their second cd and debut on Challenge Records!
