Quest, the quartet featuring Dave Liebman (saxophones), Richie Beirach (piano), Ron McClure (bass) and Billy Hart (drums), has released a new album, Circular Dreaming (Enja), and will perform a five-night run at Birdland in New York City next week, Feb. 19-23. Sets will take place at 8:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.

Quest originally formed in 1981, broke up in 1991 and reunited 15 years later for a European tour. The new release is something of a tribute to Wayne Shorter, who composed six of its nine tracks.
