Bentley and the group performed, before the Tangent, at Frankie’s on Friday, June 11th and Saturday, June 12th, 2021:

Now, you can hear Bentley and co. in a smaller room — and welcome back the whole Jazz at Tangent experience.

The quartet has no chording instrument — no piano or guitar. It might have some things in common with the sound of Flicker by the Chad Makela Quartet, which also features Brad on trumpet.

On David’s posts about this gig, Turner is the headliner. But I flagged Bentley because he features the group on his website, and I’ve heard him less often than Brad!
