The New Jamie Oehlers Quartet – Australian Tour

Having been living back in Perth now for two and half years, Jamie Oehlers returns with his new quartet made up of Perth’s finest young musicians. The past two years have been busy for Jamie. On top of becoming the Coordinator of Jazz Studies at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Jamie has toured Australia and Thailand with the Ari Hoenig Quartet, performed in New York and around Australia with George Garzone, performed with Charlie Haden, Eric Harland and Reuben Rogers as part of the Melbourne Jazz Festival, has recorded two new albums of standards with Paul Grabowsky and has maintained his own festival and club appearances with the Jamie Oehlers Quartet, Lost and Found, the Paul Grabowsky Sextet and Blowfish. Coming from Perth with Jamie will be Tal Cohen on piano, Nick Abbey on bass and Sean Phillips on drums. Jamie describes these young players as some of the best young talent he has ever come across. “Playing with these really creative and energetic young musicians has been an inspiration for me. When we first played together I knew something special would come of this union. As we played, rehearsed, hung out and discussed music, we developed an understanding of the direction this group would take, as well as a deeper understanding of each other’s unique influences and how they would integrate. This tour represents the result of that understanding.”  Jamie’s music is always energetic, creative and honest. Be one of the first to hear this new quartet and some of Australia’s finest new talent with one of Australia’s most awarded jazz artists.
