The Spischak David Quartet also likes to play jazz standards on its own instrumentation, but mostly performs the music of the band leader, in which the common characteristics of composition and improvisation become audible in the quartets own language.

Bop, funk, Latin and other exotic rhythms and sounds from places as from Africa, Japan, with plenty of vitality, sometimes a little humor and the historical range of music. Not even Baroque music remains from the program of the band.

The band is expected to formulate unique and even abstract musical ideas in an elaborate and sophisticated way with a classic jazz quartet lineup to make them clear and accessible as well to a wider audience to provide them understand and enjoy it.

As a result an expressive, clean and entertaining, but really exciting, versatile and extremely rich, beautiful music is springing up.
