Perry Conticchio Appearing at The National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, 6th Street/Constitution Avenue, Washington, DC. Friday, July 1, 2005 5:008:00 pm. Admission is free.

On the heels of their recently released CD, "Speak Your Truth, " the newly re-formed and energized Perry Conticchio Quartet display the band's mastery of jazz improvisation. High-energy solos open the doors to complete freedom of expression and punctuate the new quartet's tight musical interaction. The ensemble has taken off with fresh interpretations of the masters such as Miles, Monk & Coltrane, as well as contemporary composers Pat Metheney, Sam Rivers, Wayne Shorter and others.

Perry's own compositions further reveal the group's capacity for sensitive expression. Perry leads the new quartet in producing an exceptional level of jazz consciousness. From the intimate lounge to the concert stage, a wholly satisfying listening experience is created.
