Farrell Lowe joins the Four Corners Quartet, Friday, January 28, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, as the newest member of this chamber jazz ensemble. Lowe's guitar and electronics add a new dimension to the group, which began as a saxophone quartet that included local heroes Fred Hess and Mark Miller. Now featuring Richard Turco on saxophone and flute, Jennifer Turco on clarinet and recorder, and Thomas Lenk on piano, the Boulder-based quartet generally improvises on the quiet, acoustic side of the avant-garde. Considering that all four members also perform in the equally elusive Arkestra Pirata, however, concertgoers would be well-advised to withhold expectations as they enjoy these freethinking musical modernists. -- Thomas Peake
