Works by Jelly Roll Morton and other early 20th-century piano greats just fly in the hands of this 21st-century virtuoso. There’s definitely something about his combination of technical brilliance and go-for-broke dynamism that just grabs you. ”

“Andrew Oliver is almost punk-rock in his attitude about Traditional Jazz and bringing back its visceral nature.”
– Matt Fleeger, KMHD Jazz Radio (USA)
