"This is Jason's First Jazz album as a
bandleader. His efforts really paid off on
"Green Horizon". He has produced a slick,
smooth and multi dimensional Jazz album
that captures mood after mood and leaves
the listener feeling musically enriched. His
compositions are thought provoking and full
of direction and adventure.  His skills as a
young composer are finely tuned and in tune
with what's happening on the modern Jazz
scene today."  TEP

The BP4
                                                                                    The first album featuring:
                                                                                       Bob Paskowitz on sax
                                                                                         Ben Kohn on Piano
                                                                                     Jason Schwartz on bass
                                                                                      Tom Parker on drums.

This is the album that brought the creative minds of this quartet together for the first time. This is an all original music album. Written entirely
by the members of the BP4, It demonstrates their ability to craft fine works of jazz and work together like brothers of the art.  Below is the
album cover that was also designed by the members of the BP4.  Each member depicts a vision of their role in the group.  This album
contains 10 tracks and is a must have for any Jazz collection. The BP4 actually started out as the BP3,  Just Bob, Tom and Jason, Later, Ben
was introduced to the group. In the beginning the BP3 used to rehearse in a hay barn on Sunrise Farm in Avon.  Then rehearsals moved to
the home studio of Tom Parker. All of the members of the BP4 have been good friends and remained musical comrades to this date, working
all over the Northeast and recording when time (and Money) permit.
