Modus is a new quintet that style themselves after the 1950s and 1960s hard bop scene from the United States' east coast. The group has a collection of original compositions as well as popular standards from the era by well-known groups such as The Jazz Messengers and Horace Silver's quintet. Their selection incorporates rhythms and harmonies that separated hard-bop from the concurrent west-coast jazz and its bebop predecessor, and helped pave the way for the free jazz and fusion styles.
The group consists of Josh Schaffer (US) on tenor saxophone, Gaun Cochran (CA) on trumpet, Tim Yeh (TW) on keyboard/piano, ChihYang Hsieh (TW) on double bass, and Jeffrey Lee (TW) on drums.
墨德式是一個新的爵士五重奏組合，樂團風格追憶50'-60年代起，源於美國東岸的Hard Bop爵士墨德式，融和了原創與許多的美國爵士經典曲目，如：The Jazz Mesengers (亞特．布雷基) 與Horace Silver (霍若斯．席爾佛)。
