Quest discography

This is a discography of albums by Quest.

Quest was formed at the start of the 1980s. The original line-up of the group was Dave Liebman, Richie Beirach, George Mraz and Al Foster. Between the release of their first and second albums Ron McClure and Billy Hart replaced Mraz and Foster. This new line-up remained in place through to the group disbanding in 1991. The Liebman, Beirach, McClure and Hart group has reformed on occasion to tour and record in the 2000s and 2010s.
