OLIE BRICE QUINTET featuring JASON YARDE
Olie Brice: Double Bass
Alex Bonney: Cornet
Mike Fletcher: Alto Sax
George Crowley: Tenor Sax
Jeff Williams: Drums
Jason Yarde: Sop/Baritone Sax

Olie Brice is a jazz and improv double bassist who has been leading and composing for his own quintet for six years now. The quintet was named as one of the new bands 2014 in the El Intruso Critics Poll, and was described as one of the most interesting and satisfying bands on the current UK scene.
Their first album came out in 2014 and was followed last summer by their second, Day After Day. The London Jazz Blog said of it: There’s nothing formulaic here, just an open, responsive approach that speaks to many different strands of improvising tradition, old and new, and makes them personal.  The band’s line-up has remained the same since the start, despite the fact that they all have busy individual careers running their own bands, releasing their own CDs and playing with a variety of fellow musicians.
They are joined for this evening by special guest Jason Yarde, who enjoys an international career both as a saxophonist and composer. He has worked with some of the great names in jazz including McCoy Tyner, Andrew Hill and Jack DeJonette.
