The HSQ is a Detroit-based jazz quintet that performs music with purpose. The group is spearheaded by Saxophonist James Hughes & trumpeter Jimmy Smith. The quintet formed in the autumn of 2012 with the purpose of promoting their brand of Detroit be-bop; fresh tunes, intricate arrangements, tight ensemble work, intriguing solos, and music that swings are among the groups trademarks. Their sophomore album made AllMusic’s “Favorite Jazz Album” of 2015 list and has been played on radio stations all over the U.S.
