Formed in 1982 and comprised of altoists Bobby Watson
and Ed Jackson
, Rich Rothenberg
on tenor, and baritonst Jim Hartog
, the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet
is hard bop's answer to the World Saxopone Quartet
. Actually, within the straight-ahead tradition, this part-time unit (which has recorded several sets for Red and Antilles) is fairly adventurous.
