Island Jazz Quintet

Based on Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle–hence the name–Island Jazz Quintet (IJQ) is a popular Pacific Northwest band with a captivating live show and three CD releases, all of which have received critical acclaim and extensive national and international airplay. IJQ performs in the Seattle area, having appeared at countless summer music festivals and concert series. The quintet also performs at local coffeehouses and clubs while traveling engagements have taken them as far as China and Mexico. Whether digging up an obscure relic, debuting a new tune–about half the material is original–or delivering a take on a favorite Bossa Nova, IJQ is full of talent and surprises.
