Donald Washington Quartet

The Artists' Quarter may still be shuttered, but great jazz persists in St. Paul, at popular prices -- it's pass the tip jar, in this case. Ace trumpeter Steve Kenny leads a quartet of bar all-stars featuring bassist Billy Peterson, saxophonist Brandon Wozniak and drummer Jay Epstein, who's just back from playing some European shows with Bill Carrothers' Armistice 1918 band. This new combo's "book" consists largely of Thelonious Monk tunes, and that's a good thing. Tom Surowicz
