Biography of Patrick Kunka

Created at Boston's Berklee College of Music in 2008, the Patrick Kunka Quartet brings together some of Scotland's most promising young rising-star jazz musicians in an explosive and highly creative new project. Led by Aberdonian drummer and composer Patrick Kunka, their music combines a youthful energy and fire with a fully-grown musical sensitivity and highly developed instrumental facility all round. The group's debut CD The Edge was recorded in early 2009.

"An aggression rarely seen in British Jazz" - Metro

"A remarkable outfit even for the remarkable current Scottish scene" - JazzUK

"Each musician took their turn to show off their skills in a mindblowing set ... For newcomers to jazz, high priests of jazz and everybody in between, this fine drummer's quartet are definitely worth catching" - Evening Express

"Although barely in their 20s, all four musicians display a remarkable maturity ... These are undoubtedly stars of the future, playing with fresh and engaging individuality today." - ExploreMusic

"Alan Benzie rips through lightning runs, creates chordal explosions and swings with real vigour, and partner-in-rhythm Dylan Coleman is a tempestuous string bassist" - Metro

"A very high level of musicianship both in playing and composition..." - Bruno Raberg

"Leah embraces the old and new, with masterful technical facility, but with a very organic approach.." - George Garzone

"Benzie's playing was succinctly swinging.. ..a bright prospect." - John Fordham, The Guardian
