SANDRO NORTON & FRIENDS
The Sandro Norton Quartet is best described as alchemy. Amelting pot
for mixing and experimenting with different music genres from
traditional jazz and blues to rock and jazz fusion. It can also be seen

the Sandro Norton Quartet has created almost three hours of
repertoire; culminating in a dynamic performance which never fails to
draw its audience in.
