Oliver Groenewald NewNet


The “little big band” of 8-12 pieces provides a nice pallet of tonal colors as exemplified by people like Gil Evans, Gerry Mulligan, Phil Woods, et al.  How nice to see that tradition carried forward and updated to the 21st century by Oliver Groenewald whose rich arrangements are played with obvious relish by this outstanding group of musicians.

  2. I am a jazz DJ on Lopez Island. (I’m on the air 3-6 pm today, Monday, January 16, 2017, on http://www.KLOI.org streaming audio. I and other sponsors are interested in hiring your band for a concert here on Lopez Island, perhaps in the spring or summer. If nothing else, I’d like to hire you for my 50th anniversary party next January. Interested?


  3. Hi Ollie,

    Wondeful sounds and a great website!

    FYI we’re back from our trips and here for quite a while. Let’s get together if your schedule allows.

    Best regards also to Wendy also from Anna.
