Fourplay enters the legendary Sunset Sound Studios this week, to record an album celebrating their 25th anniversary as one of Jazz’s true super-groups.
Like Marvel’s own super-group, the Avengers, each member of Fourplay has their own individual success, but it’s when they come together that everyone’s performance is elevated, and truly special things happen.
Stay tuned for updates, and announcements surrounding the release of Fourplay’s 25th Anniversary album, over the next several months…
