Q is for The Quadratic Contingency
This four-piece jazz band are a delight to enjoy. I saw them play at the Brisbane Powerhouse recently, as part of the Turbine Jazz series.

With their band leader, Paul Young, also playing drums, he is joined on stage by three amazing musicians playing keys, upright bass, clarinet. The room stayed mostly quiet, which was lovely to enjoy a dramatic jazz performance. The instruments blended well with each other and there was some enjoyable improvisation moments as well as more structured tunes. I especially enjoyed the upright bass solo, pictured below.
