Olie Brice Quintet

As ever it’s a delight to welcome back Olie Brice, especially with his own band. Olie is well know to Vortex audiences, having performed here with Tony Malaby, Paul Dunmall, Evan Parker and many others.  He has released recently a duo with Dutch saxophonist Toby Delius and there are plans to release an album (recorded at the Vortex) with the top German prize winning pianist Achim Kaufmann.

Tonight the quintet will feature Olie on double bass, Alex Bonney on trumpet, George Crowley on tenor sax, Mike Fletcher on C-Melody sax and Jeff Williams on drums.

They will be playing new music ahead of recording. He writes a good description of the new work on his blog here:

Reviews of their last album:

“As a debut album, this is as good as anyone could hope for and promises much for the future” – All About Jazz
“The music that the quintet makes is strong, manages to remain innovative and truly accessible, what more can one ask!” – Free Jazz Blog
