The Equity & Social Justice Quartet is dedicated to raising awareness, and when possible funds, for nonprofit and community organizations dedicated to equity and social justice. Our projects have supported the Homeless Children’s Network (San Francisco); and in Denver, we have partnered with Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC).

With the ESJQ, I composed the theme song for the Who We Are podcast. From slavery to sharecropping to mass incarceration, American institutions have reproduced cycles of social rupture and exploitation by design. Is it even possible to imagine true equity as long as the current carceral system stands?


With an aesthetic approach influenced by the likes of Ornette Coleman, the quartet creates a sonic landscape with a vitality all its own. The album showcases eight original compositions including a spontaneous solo bass piece, "Poverty Revisited." This is jazz that pushes the harmonic envelope.

This CD is as uplifting and well-done as the intention that inspired it…KFJC 89.7FM
