Who we are
THE DOUBLE ALBUM
"The TOaG Quartet: Live at the Airship" is an 84-minute double album of all original music, recorded live in front of an audience at the premiere Airship Laboratories recording studio. Charting a course of all original music that spans dirge like ballads, greasy grooves, cinematic arrangements, sizzling up tempo swingers, and narrative interludes, this sonic adventure is going to take you places. Sparking the mind with truth, and moving the spirit with groove, this music is the product of our collective - which is one part working band and one part teaching ensemble.
THE DEBUT ALBUM
"Grey and Green" is the debut album of Oakland-based furious jazz ensemble the TOaG Quartet. Recorded live at Airship Laboratories in May of 2017, this record represents the beginning of our journey together as a band, and we are so proud to share it with you. Featuring several compositions by our esteemed trumpet player Matt Kelly, a dazzling array of soundscapes from DV Wright, and the deep pockets of Mr. Carter and Mr. Lee, this album is where TOaG was born!
