Bands of MST

Mary-Sue Tobin (MST) is involved in more bands and projects than can be counted. But, here is a list of three of the more venerable ensembles she plays a leading role in.


The Quadraphonnes

Passionate about the saxophone, its characteristics and possibilities, The Quadraphonnes are adventurous! These strong, talented, ladies break the boundaries of the saxophone quartet with their mighty chops, tantalizing grooves, soaring solos and dynamic vocals. Covering a variety of musical styles from jazz-funk-pop, to avant-garde, gypsy-punk and classical, the Quads put on a great show!


The MSQ - Mary Sue quintet

The MSQuintet is led by saxophonist Mary-Sue Tobin (The Quadraphonnes, PJCE, Rebirth of the Cool and others), an esteemed member of the Portland jazz community. Active in many musical projects as a performer and band-leader, Mary-Sue is excited to introduce the latest version of the MSQuintet, featuring some of the original members as well as a couple of new additions.


Rebirth of the cool

David Watson is Re-Birthing The Cool: Bebop N Beyond, plays the original music of ‘The Birth Of The Cool’ written by Gerry Mulligan, Miles Davis/Gil Evans, Chet Baker, Dave Pell and Bill Holman plus the hip arrangements of Pete Petersen and originals by David Watson.
