Omar Tamez is capable of coaxing otherworldly chords and melodies out of his guitar. Angelica Sanchez is a formidable pianist with a percussive, avant-garde style. Drummer Harvey Sorgen has worked with artists ranging from The Allman Brothers Band and Paul Simon to Dave Douglas and Dewey Redman. And bassist Joe Fonda has played with Billy Bang and Barry Altschul among others. When these four distinctive artists combine their talents they become The Fortuna Quartet.
The Fortuna Quartet performs Sunday, November 30, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $15 ($10 students). 737-0137; bopshop.com.
