Renowned for their dynamic live performances, they engage in real-time musical dialogues, crafting each show uniquely from the ground up with keyboards and drum machines, eschewing laptops and samplers for a more tactile experience.
Formed in 2002, their music is recorded in a single take, capturing the essence of spontaneity whether from live sessions or studio mixes.

With releases on labels like !K7 and ITISWHATITIS Recordings, Cobblestone Jazz has maintained a consistent presence, evidenced by their influential albums such as 23 Seconds and The Modern Deep Left Quartet.
