The Quintessential Jazz Quartet performs at the next concert in the Envision Financial Coffee House Concert Series.

The Envision Financial Coffee House Concert Series presents the Quintessential Jazz Band at SippChai Café (31205 Maclure Rd.) on Saturday, Nov. 15.

The concert runs from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The Quintessential Jazz quartet has been playing throughout the Lower Mainland for the past 10 years.

They play jazz standards and their own original compositions with a sound they call “classic jazz with a twist.”

Instead of traditional jazz, the band blends the Fender Rhodes keyboard sound and electric bass with guitar, sax, and drums.

The group has enjoyed nearly 300 gigs at a variety of venues, including posh hotel ballrooms, jazz festivals, and backyard barbecues.

Quintessential has recorded three CDs – “Quintessential Coffee,” “Out and About,” and “Quintessential Christmas.”

Their coffee album has been played on jazzradio.com, CBC and CKUA radio.

They are great friends and private music teachers who love to play jazz together.
