This week, two sets from a new band featuring the compositions of new (ish) Londoner the pianist Andrew Oliver! We’ve checked out some of the music he made in the US, so we know we’re in store for a night of exciting original music. Come down and hear for yourself on Thursday…here’s the blurb:
American pianist and composer Andrew Oliver relocated to London from Portland, Oregon in 2013. Continuing his compositional explorations into groovy chamber-jazz for the 21st century, he presents a new London based quintet performing original music influenced by minimalism, Zimbabwean and west African traditions, trains, and the omnipresent shuffle of genres in the world today.
