Dominic Minix Quartet

The Dominic Minix Quartet is a group of young, progressive minded New Orleans musicians.  They play music that is improvised and promotes communication, therefore it is rooted in jazz. The music is also groove-based like R&B, hip hop, and funk.  Always eager to push the envelope, the Dominic Minix Quartet experiments with combining their more inherent influences like Jimi Hendrix with their modern jazz sound.
