Described as being like an indie band that plays post-jazz, Portico Quartet’s music mixes the inspiration of Philip Glass and Steve Reich with a very contemporary kind of jazz improvisation. It’s the blend of ethereal saxophone, the steel pan-like Hang, clattering drums and earthy double-bass that gives their music its unique, beautiful sound.
