All About Jazz, May 28, 2017

by Edward Blanco

“The Common Quartet is a relatively unknown group of players from the Brooklyn, NY jazz community presenting their debut album entitled The Hive delivering an audacious set of modern jazz original tunes from members of the band and stellar interpretations of two standards….An uncommonly terrific debut from the Common Quartet as The Hive so ably demonstrates. A solid foundation from which to expand boundaries and obtain critical attention. Seth Trachy and crew have something here that Brooklyn may not contain much longer, well done!”

JazzScene, May 2017

By Alex W. Rodriguez

“Most of the original pieces are spacious and melodic, reflecting some themes common to the younger generation of jazz improvisers working in today’s New York scene….All told, Common Quartet’s first album suggests that they have already developed an uncommon rapport and collective sound.”
