Tone Janša is a musician of modern direction and is no doubt one of the most promising jazz musicians of Yugoslavia. One could well believe this after having heard his music. Janša introduced fresh, and dynamic music, which is modally and rhythmically very interesting. He plays his own tunes. His work contains intensification of rhythm, which is characteristic feature of his music. His progress is rapid and there is not enough space to speak about it in detail. However, the essence of his music is hidden elsewhere - in about it in detail. However, the essence of his music is hidden elsewhere - in the exceptional inventiveness and extraordinary energy, that originates in the manner he plays, thus revealing his artistic definition. His playing reaches other members of the group, thus achieving rich improvisation, which reflects both their common life style as well as the feeling of individual group members.

The quartet plays contemporary music with free improvisation, in fact it is concentrated and each new born idea flows from one to the other enriching itself and acquiring lines. Iridescent themes become lyrical variations performed with great inventiveness where every member of the group is will acquainted with his part.
