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.

We’re happy to announce the release of our first album called “Low Contrast.” To check out or purchase this recording please visit:
