THE HOWARD FISHMAN QUARTET

The band that landed Fishman in New York City’s Algonquin Oak Room for an extended residency and went on to take Paris by storm, HFQ plays pre-war jazz, blues and standards with Fishman’s vocals and guitar accompanied by violin, trumpet and upright bass. Stephen Holden, writing in The New York Times, said “rather than studiously copying the sounds of the past, this band recombines familiar sounds to create its own brand of classicism [that] transcends time and idiom.” This band is featured on the recordings "The Howard Fishman Quartet" Volumes I, II and III.

The Howard Fishman Quartet has headlined on prestiguous jazz and cabaret stages worldwide, including: The Algonquin Oak Room, Feinstein's at the Regency, The Blue Note, The Jazz Standard, NJPAC, Jazz @ Lincoln Center, The Steppenwolf Theater, Le Petit Journal (Paris), Sardi's, Stamford Center for the Arts and The Chicago Humanities Festival.
