The Inner Circle
Addison Rifkind, Arnie Co, Alonso Sanchez, and Gabriel Lee comprise of The Inner Circle. The Inner Circle is a jazz quartet comprised of student musicians from the San Jose area. Initially meeting as a weekly reading group, the quartet eventually broadened their scope to include their own arrangements and compositions. Whether interpreting the pieces of the masters before them or presenting their own works, the group aims to develop their voices in the setting of a small jazz ensemble.
Drawing influence from writers like Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock, and Grant Green gives The Inner Circle a multifaceted and fresh sound beyond the barriers of one genre.
