 Jay Phelps Quartet


Led by co-founder of Empirical Jay Phelps - JPQ is a group of young musicians dedicated to contemporary jazz music.  Jay Phelps' music is a journey through an array of many styles and temperaments, with a strong sense of what is contemporary in Jazz today. Trumpeter Phelps has spent the last 2 years travelling the world, writing, and has been on a spiritual journey that incorporates these influences along with the new addition of his vocals, into the music. 'Free as the Birds'-Phelps' new album (due for release, June 2017) uses this theme of travel as a main reference point.
