Olie Brice Quintet
Double bassist and composer Olie Brice leads a unusual quintet featuring the three horns of Mark Hanslip ( tenor sax), Alex Bonney (trumpet) and Waclaw Zimpel (alto clarinet) plus Jeff Williams at the drums. Album “Immune To Clockwork” released in October 2014 on the Polish Mulikulti label.
"“Immune To Clockwork” represents an impressive début from Brice and strikes a good balance between the written and the improvised with the quintet delivering a highly distinctive group sound. "
"The balance between the composed and the improvised is as assured as ever and with this â€˜newâ€™ quintet Brice has top quality musicians capable of bringing his ideas to vibrant life."
