“… Two albums, a whole lot of elegant, straight-ahead jazz. Bob Schwartz is an impressive presence on the bandstand; his improvisation has the feeling of a lively raconteur, spinning yarns with witty asides and amusing details. He and the band have a special affection for playing standards that have fallen out of the usual rotation…”
Michael J. West, Washington City Paper, February 12, 2015
BSQ has been on the D.C. scene for seven years, devoted to straight-ahead jazz, from duos to sextets, and vocals by Nina Schwartz. The emphasis is on bop and swing, lesser known standards in each genre, and original compositions by leader Bob Schwartz and pianist Oren Levine. BSQ is a regular attraction at D.C. area jazz clubs, lounges, restaurant and hotel venues, and private events. BSQ CDs, downloads, and streams are available at CD Baby, Amazon MP3, iTunes, and several streaming services. For current bookings, please follow (“like”) us on our Facebook page.
