THE OLSON PINGREY QUARTET

The Olson Pingrey Quartet is a project that I co-lead with trombonist Randy Pingrey.  We perform original compositions by Mr. Pingrey and myself arranged for bari sax, trombone, bass, and drums.  Inspired by the great Mulligan/Brookmeyer quartet we mix the old with the new.  We play freely but also keep up the tradition of  hard-bop and bebop as well as mixing in more modern compositions.  The unique sound of the bari and trombone as well as the lack of a chordal instrument gives OPQ something a little different.
