In 1982, Rory Stuart formed a quartet with Keith CopelandCalvin Hill, and Armen Donelian. They recorded "NightWork," released on the Cadence label. It was critically acclaimed, and led to performances at concerts, festivals, and clubs. Anthony Cox took Calvin's place from 1985-1986 and during that time the Quartet recorded "Hurricane," released on Sunnyside.

Rory Stuart and Armen Donelian are colleagues on the faculty of the New School Jazz Program.

Calvin Hill and Armen Donelian appear on Donelian's CD, "Quartet Language" with Thomas Chapin and Jeff Williams, recorded in 1992 and released on Playscape Recordings in 2003.
