“four stars... one of the top chordless quartet sets of the year.”
Dan McClenaghan / All About Jazz
“The best in the business… The Spin Quartet promises to keep audiences paying attention.”

Speaking to the convergent circles that these musicians operate in - The Spin Quartet brings together four modern internationally touring jazz artists with a shared vision. For the past 4 years the group has been performing together, the product of which is now available internationally on Origin Records. Recorded shortly after Chad McCullough had relocated to Chicago, IL; their album, In Circles captures the group’s dynamic interplay and cohesion, showcasing the group’s original repertoire.
The Spin Quartet features multiple-CMA-grant recipient, and NIU professor Geof Bradfield on saxophone, Grammy-winning bassist Clark Sommers (Kurt Elling, Brian Blade, Darrell Grant), drummer Jon Deitemyer (Matt Ulery, Merge Quintet), and is spearheaded by trumpeter, and newly appointed DePaul University faculty member Chad McCullough (Bram Weijters, The Kora Band).
From Origin Records:
"The collective spirit is apparent throughout the group's debut album as they take a free-wheeling approach on Sommers’ "Little Marionette," and McCullough’s composition "Camping Lantern," display a depth of mood and character on the pensive "Oranges...," or twist and turn through Bradfield's 'You Will Look for Yours on Earth'."
