Melodic Jazz Guitar
“It’s a new quartet playing all original music crafted by Renz. Paul Renz music keeps surprising, with stylistically diverse, finely honed tunes, sometimes taut and tuneful, and sometimes open-ended and unpredictable. You name the jazz genre and PRQ is all over it, blending bebop, funk, Latin, straight ahead swing, and plenty of blues. Renz’s compositions and fretwork alike exult in unveiling intriguing melodic and rhythmic angles with insouciant charm, knocking out listeners with subtle firepower hidden in a splendid vocabulary of feints and finesse.” -Rick Mason, City Pages
