New solo album now available from Rivermont Records!
“It’s easy to assume that Jelly Roll Morton, Sidney Bechet et al can’t speak to a younger generation, but pianist Andrew Oliver’s quartet lays that notion to rest.” – Sunday Times (UK)
“Andrew Oliver is almost punk-rock in his attitude about Traditional Jazz and bringing back its visceral nature.” – Matt Fleeger, KMHD Jazz Radio (USA)
“Phenomenally well played, with a freshness that dispels any suspicion of solemn archaism.” – Dave Gelley, Jazz Journal (UK)
“Mr Oliver is a pianist almost completely immersed in the New Orleans style of playing, a relative rarity these days. He maintains swagger and swing through each interpretation” – Jazz Da Gama (Canada)
New collection of quarantine overdubs made with friends around the world March-June 2020 now complete!
I’m a pianist from Portland, OR specializing in early jazz, stride piano, ragtime, and tango. After seven years in London, I’ve relocated back to Portland in June 2020. For the moment, my site will be up-to-date with current home recording and quarantine projects as well as info on upcoming livestreams on the Performances page and stay tuned for gigs when they restart.
Meanwhile my new solo album is out on Rivermont Records, and albums by the Dime Notes, Complete Morton Project, Vitality Five, Horniblow’s Hot Three, Bridgetown Sextet, Tunnel Six and more are all still available over at the Albums page!
Here are some recent videos as well. Thanks for stopping by!
