The Andrew Oliver Sextet explores new avenues in modern jazz, performing original compositions by its members which draw on jazz, world music, and other influences, and demonstrate a sophisticated rhythmic conception without sacrificing a strong sense of drive or pulse.
The group strives for a cohesive ensemble sound, both through its original repertoire and through the close interaction of its members. The band, originally a quartet, has been in its present instrumentation for almost two years, and has developed a challenging and diverse book which holds the interest of its audiences. Led by Andrew Oliver, current pianist for Devin Phillips’ group New Orleans Straight Ahead and co-director of the Portland Jazz Composer’s Ensemble, Andrew has recently returned from a tour in Africa with Devin sponsored by the U.S. State Department and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
