The young generation alto saxophonist Adomas Bitinas, who studies at Liudas Mockunas saxophone class, puts up “Fierce Quartet” to represent Lithuanian Music and Theatre Academy at Saulkrasti Jazz Festival.
All band members are students at LMTA, but besides that have already become active on the Lithuanian jazz scene playing different genres of jazz music.
Through ambitious original compositions and own arrangements of standards “Fierce Quartet” brings a fusion of be bop, contemporary groove and avant-garde aesthetics. The band can swing and rock, be gentle and aggressive, plunge into abstract free playing and strict odd meter grooves.
