Donna Lee Saxophone Quartet

Donna Lee Saxophone Quartet osnovali su 1999. godine Zdenko Ivanušić i Andrej Henigman. Članovi kvarteta danas su Zdenko Ivanušić /sopran, alt/; Andrej Henigman /alt/; Vanja Ileković /tenor/; Aleš Suša /bariton/. Kvartet je od osnutka imao brojne koncertne nastupe, te nastupe na radiju i televiziji.

DLSQ izvodi obrade jazz standarda, mada se i originalne obrade i skladbe 29th Street Saxophone Quarteta i World Saxophone Quarteta mogu naći na repertoaru. Kvartet teži autorskom zvuku preko originalnih kompozicija i aranžmana Zdenka Ivanušića.

Uz to što su izvrsni instrumentalisti, članovi kvarteta su svestrani i fleksibilni glazbenici koji posjeduju improvizatorske vještine prijeko potrebne u jazzu ali i u suvremenoj tzv. klasičnoj glazbi. DLSQ je ansambl koji njeguje robustan zvuk s tipično saksofonističkim pristupom, ali može biti i lirski s eteričnim zvukom u baladama. Donna Lee Saxophone Quartet je izdao dva CD-a: “Four Odd” (2005.) i “Mellow” (2008.) za Zivaldo Records.

Donna Lee Sax4 in Regensburg (Germany)

DLSQ @ Jazz Club RegensburgDonna Lee Saxophone Quartet had a few successful concerts lately. We did a few concerts around Croatia (Mali Lošinj, Velika Gorica, Vinkovci) and finally had a performance in 20 Jahre Jazzclub, Regensburg, Germany. This is a club with 20 years tradition with big following and hosted performances by great players, so we are proud that we were invited to play there. We played two 1-hour sets, mostly our original tunes recorded on “Mellow” and “Four Odd” CD, and a few arrangements of jazz standards (Lush Life, Summertime, Birdland…). The concert was recorded audio (Minidisc) and video camera, so I will put some videos at Youtube when editing will be finished.
