The Classical Jazz Quartet is a jazz quartet established in the 2000s. It consists of mainstream jazz performers playing jazz interpretations of classical music repertoire.
Bob Belden has written arrangements for the group. The group first came together when bassist Ron Carter contacted pianist Kenny Barron to work together. Discussing the prospect of covering Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, vibraphonist Stefon Harris and drummer Lewis Nash were soon called in and the group decided to go ahead with the project.
