About the Show!
The Rooibos Quartet is a guitar, piano, bass and drum modern jazz quartet consisting of Jesse Shafer, Tyler Sim, Fisher Wilson and Kain Naylor. The group came as a result of old friendships and took shape one evening where the four members were coincidentally placed on a gig together. Jesse brought several original tunes with him that evening that became the basis of this recording project. The band collectively hopes to bring a new repertoire to the existing legacy of jazz as well as a rich and colorful sound. Following recording the album with Wolfgang Zimmerman at Rialto Row, the group sought out to expand their network, thus opening a relationship with Sunnyside Records. As it stands, all of the members regularly play gigs around Charleston, but save performances as the Rooibos Quartet for special occasions, such as this debut album release show at Forte.
