Ryan Oliver: tenor saxophone, Gary Williamson: piano, Victor Lewis: drums, Alex Coleman: bass
Ryan Oliver’s latest recording, STRIVE!, is an electrifying contemporary jazz record featuring New York drum legend Victor Lewis. The group performed several times in Toronto before entering the studio in July 2012. The resulting recording features a band rapport that is wholly integrated while maintaining an edge-of-your-seat excitement. Featuring 9 of Oliver’s original compositions, STRIVE! captures the dynamic quartet at their best, and showcases each band member to stunning effect.
