The Aram Shelton Quartet plays creative jazz music inspired by the likes of Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, Charles Mingus, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. In this quartet, Shelton is joined by Chicagoans Keefe Jackson on tenor saxophone, Anton Hatwich on bass, and Tim Daisy on drums.

Shelton’s compositions for the group feature strong melodies and inventive forms. "Everything for Somebody", their sophomore album, features six compositions that place the players in familiar and challenging territory, with an eye towards exploring the many pairings available through solos, duos, trios and the full quartet. All four members contribute narrative solos to this album, displaying their individual styles while making a collective music that is joyful, energetic, raw and poignant.
