Today, the LEGO Group has revealed the latest fan-designed set, the #21334 LEGO Ideas Jazz Quartet – a striking depiction of a musical ensemble in brick form, designed to be co-built by up to four friends. Designed by Taiwan-based, LEGO fan, Hsinwei Chi through the LEGO Ideas platform – which offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the profits.
Let the smooth harmony and diversity of jazz music take on a new form with this latest set, which consists of a group of four musicians on a stage, with a grand piano, trumpet, double bass, and jazz drum, representing a quartet as they perform. Place the finished piece on a bookshelf and admire it whilst you relax with some melodies playing in the background.
LEGO Ideas fan designer Hsinwei Chi says, “There is nothing quite like the warmth of jazz music, so when I designed this set I wanted the LEGO bricks to truly capture the musical vitality of a live band. Much like LEGO building, free-spirited jazz can be medicine for your mind – so I hope when the Jazz Quartet set is built and displayed, people will feel a connection to the music.”
The set features four diverse musicians (male and female of multiple skin tones), a stage, a grand piano, trumpet, double bass, and a jazz drum set. It can be built by up to four people or solo – whichever the user decides! The set comes with 1,606 pieces and each model measures: 7.5” / 20cm high, 17″ / 43cm wide, and 6” / 16cm deep.
The new #21334 LEGO Ideas Jazz Quartet set is going to be available starting from the 1st of July. Prices are as follows: £89.99 / € 99.99 / $ 99.99 /169.99 AUD/ 129.99 CAD. For more information visit the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Hmm, it might have been a smart choice to add a woman to the mix. Missus Hipness Goddam!
Otherwise, the players seem to have been posed more elegantly on the original proposal, but possibly their thinner legs were too unstable for an official Lego set.
I’m not a big fan of brickbuilt figures, but I like the musical instruments. Especially the piano.
I liked the original figures better. And the musical instruments were better too. Everything was sleeker in the original. And I don’t like they added the fat lady.
