Bert Seager presents…Tetraptych ≈ March 1st / 7:30pm


Say:  ” TET-trup-tick”

It is a four-paneled painting.

It is also the name of an exuberant jazz quartet that performs the music of acclaimed pianist Bert Seager. Tetraptych brings a breathing conversant quality to its playing, where interaction rather than assigned roles is what lights the fire. The magic arises as the musicians weave threads of free improvisation into the compositions. Throughout, one encounters the tetraptych: the input of each member as the collective meaning unfolds.


Bert Seager – pianist, composer and bandleader has written tunes specifically to fit these musicians, their strengths and collaborative chemistry.

Hery Paz – Cuban-born tenor saxophonist who produces a big round passionate sound plays with a wide ranging and profoundly melodic imagination.

Max Ridley – upright bassist makes the music dance while playfully breaking open the grid of time to liberate the proceedings.

Dor Herskovits – Israeli-born drummer whose deep feel and intelligent phrasing drive and shape the music holds the key to its ebullience.

One senses their unique personalities and warmth as they each navigate their changing roles in the unfolding drama. This is the embodiment of interconnection through sound.
