With a line-up steeped in tradition, Draw By Four take the classic 60s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from leader Jon Shenoy (Ivo Neame Large Ensemble) mix contrapuntal bass lines and rhythmic hooks with thoughtful lyricism. Mixing stark ethereal voices with gritty Hammond boogaloo, organist Will Bartlett (Jim Mullen, Salena Jones) draws on a wide palette of sounds that build the foundation for an infectious mix of groove-based original compositions, enchanting ballads and unique arrangements of avant-pop songs.

“Shenoy plays with great assurance, power and fluency.” – Ian Mann (thejazzmann.com)
“Shenoy displays a melodic sensibility that bears comparision with any of the great saxophone balladeers of yore.” – Bebop Spoken Here
