Maureen is a classically-trained violinist with a passion for composition and improvisation. Since 1993 her award-winning performances and collaborations have spanned several continents and included several diverse musical influences, all of which have helped create her unique sound, firmly based in Latin Jazz.
Her first jazz album "Maureen Choi Quartet" (2011) was critically well received among US radio stations and in publications such as Jazziz Magazine and Jazz Corner, as well as remaining in AllAboutJazz Top 50 for several months.
Maureen Choi Quartet offers a captivating live performance consisting of original compositions and arrangements of traditional Spanish and Latin American pieces providing “an intensely enriching experience from the moment they start playing. It starts delicate and finishes as a party” (RTVE, Spanish National Radio).
Maureen Choi Quartet is currently on tour presenting their latest album, Ida y Vuelta, through Europe, Asia and North America and their next projects include collaborating with the dancers of the Spanish National Ballet.
As George Fendel of JazzScene Magazine put it: “Look out! The next jazz violin virtuoso may be discovered in these grooves!”
