Fourplay at Berks Jazz Fest, April 2, 2011
Fourplay has been captivating the jazz crowd for over 20 years. Bob James on piano, Nathan East on bass/vocals, Harvey Mason on drums and new addition Chuck Loeb on lead guitar make up the latest configuration of a great jazz group. The stage was bright and colorful as the quartet stirred up its magic playing familiar tunes and works from their latest album. Chuck Loeb is an outstanding player and I’m sure will prove to be as great for Fourplay as Lee Ritenour and Larry Calton were in the group’s earlier forms.
