BRQ plays a huge variety of tunes in many jazz styles and from numerous jazz eras. We love requests and are seldom stumped.
In addition, BRQ stretches the boundaries to include songs from sources not traditionally associated with jazz, but which lend themselves to reinterpretation from a jazz perspective. As a result, you just never know what might pop up on any given night.
(rhythm changes bebop tune by Sonny Rollins)
SOMEBODY LOVES ME
(standard by G. Gershwin, B. MacDonald and B. DeSylva)
(latin classic by Kenny Dorham)
