Perpetual Motion / Press

“Sometimes it is worth it to stop and enjoy something on your journey, rather than to always be in perpetual motion. This past Saturday we got to do both. Denver locals Josie Quick and Tom Carleno brought Perpetual Motion to Fresh City Life. Right off, I'll tell you that, if you missed this wonderful concert, we will be bringing Perpetual Motion back for an encore in the new year. They are fantastic! This sought-after duo blends acoustic world music into a bright fusion of sounds. Mixing international styles, Perpetual Motion moves effortlessly between the traditions of Central and South American folk, progressive jazz, blues and rock. This eclectic approach to music informs their original compositions and cover tunes. Perpetual Motion's energy is what drives this dynamic group. Their eclectic jazz sound is a style of their own creation. Always on the move, their adept arrangements, great original pieces, and energetic stage presence are pitch perfect. You just have to hear them!”

“Things were moving along for veteran jazz duo Perpetual Motion with plans underway to record their fifth CD when violinist Josie Quick was sidelined with lupus, an autoimmune disease affecting joints and other tissue. Today, through the care of a great doctor and alternative therapies, Quick is back playing again. Her jazz ensemble, Perpetual Motion, is celebrating with a comeback concert on Saturday, Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Swallow Hill Music Association, 71 E. Yale Ave. in Denver. Call 303-777-1003 for tickets or visit www.swallowhillmusic.org.”

“Wonderfully refreshing! Perpetual Motion has definitely found themselves a niche sound. They had me at the first sound bite. Moving, emotional and powerfully articulate (without lyrics) the musical skills displayed are miles above average and the melodies truly emotive. An inspiring display. Bravo!”

Duss Rodgers - Catsask Music

““The musical images are so vivid they almost spring forth from the strings. We had a casual fling with excellence and it was hard to let go.””

Avaril - Riff magazine

““Perpetual Motion simply delivers good music that will leave you whistling.””

Bobby Bensley - Riff magazine

““Carleno’s adept arrangements, their selection of great original pieces and energetic stage presence are always entertaining. Always different, and always moving.””
