Info for Veer Quartet

Violinist/composer Sarah Bernstein presents the debut release from her new ensemble, Veer Quartet. Chamber jazz string quartets represent a fascinating sub-genre, a small cross section of string players who are improvisers and have absorbed a diversity of stylistic feels with those inclined to apply those skills to this venerated instrumentation. Bernstein's approach to leading and composing for the group is fresh and unique, eschewing the more overt populism of forebears like Turtle Island String Quartet in favor of an exploration of more progressive spaces, grounded in transparent harmonies, contrapuntal textures, and swung grooves. Her writing is front and center on this self titled album, balancing textural explorations with forward directed impulses.

Sarah Bernstein
is a New York-based violinist/composer whose work blurs the lines between innovative jazz, new chamber music, experimental pop and noise music. Over the course of ten albums as a leader and countless collaborations, she has garnered international acclaim for her multi-disciplinary performances and distinctive recordings. She leads the improvising string ensemble VEER Quartet, the avant-jazz Sarah Bernstein Quartet, the poetic minimalist duo Unearthish, and performs solo with heavily-processed voice/violin as Exolinger. Ongoing collaborations include her noise-electronic duo with drummer Kid Millions, the experimental synth-pop band Day So Far, and ensemble work with trumpeter Dave Scott, cellist Tomeka Reid, thereminist Pamelia Stickney and others. She has placed in the DownBeat Magazine Critics Poll annually since 2015, winning “Rising Star Violinist” in 2020. She is originally from San Francisco, CA.
