This week we welcome back Olie Brice and his fantastic quartet. Olie has appeared at LUME in all sorts of groups, including solo, and this band played for us back in 2013 at our first venue Hundred Crows Rising. Olie is one of the most in-demand and versatile bass players on the UK jazz/improv scene.
The Olie Brice Quartet features Olie on double bass, George Crowley on tenor sax, Alex Bonney on trumpet and Jeff Williams on drums. They play Olie’s original composiitons combining his love of swing and melody with a strong sense of freedom and experimentation. Olie Brice recently released his debut album as a leader, ‘Immune to Clockwork’. The album has received excellent reviews and the group was picked as one of the 5 new bands of 2014 by El Intruso Iinternational Poll of Jazz critics.
