Arête Quartet (pronounced uh-RETT) is a groove-oriented acid jazz ensemble, borrowing from downtempo, straight ahead jazz, funk, punk, Brazilian and other styles.
Themes and grooves from rhythm-sectionists Joel Litwin (Erin Corday, Orb Trio, Incendio) and Steve Jones (Rumors of the Big Wave, Yambique, Obá Obá) provide the jumping-off point for prodigious soloists Joe Doria (McTuff, Michael Shrieve’s Spellbinder, Skerik’s Syncopated Taint) and Dave Carter (Wayne Horvitz, Pearl Jam, Bill Frisell).
With a respectful nod towards the traditions of jazz, Arête Quartet’s main troublemaker Joe Doria (keyboards) makes detours into electronica, trip-hop and controlled maelstrom, all the while parrying and playing off long-time collaborator and melodic master Dave Carter (trumpet). Ranging from a whisper to a scream, the band is capable of amazing subtlety and improvisation.
