R. Carlos Nakai Quartet
Mixing original compositions with inspired improvisations, RCNQ features R. Carlos Nakai on Native American flutes, concert flute, trumpet and voice; Will Clipman on drums, pan-global percussion and voice; AmoChip Dabney on saxophones, keyboards and voice; and Johnny Walker on bass and voice. The music of RCNQ spans the sonic spectrum from quietly contemplative to highly combustible and from soothingly meditative to irresistibly danceable, always delivered with an impeccable blend of rhythm, melody and harmony and a positive vibration.
R. Carlos Nakai’s flowing flute melodies are enhanced by the restlessly creative imagination of saxophonist-keyboardist AmoChip Dabney and anchored by the nimble rhythms of ethno-world drummer Will Clipman and bassist Johnny Walker. Irresistible global-ethnic-fusion grooves propel the signature sound of Nakai’s Native American flute into newly explored sonic territory.
