The past two years have been busy for Jamie. Jamie has toured and recorded with Ari Hoenig, performed in New York and around Australia with George Garzone, performed with Charlie Haden, Eric Harland and Reuben Rogers as part of the Melbourne Jazz Festival, has recorded two new albums of standards with Paul Grabowsky and has maintained his own festival and club appearances around the globe with the Jamie Oehlers Quartet, Lost and Found, the Paul Grabowsky Sextet and Blowfish.
Jamie Oehlers has formed a quartet made up of three of Perth's finest young musicians, Nick Abbey (bass), Jacob Evans (drums) and Tal Cohen (piano). Jamie describes these young players as some of the best young talent he has ever come across. Playing with these really creative and energetic young musicians has been an inspiration for me. When we first played together I knew something special would come of this union. As we played, rehearsed, hung out and discussed music, we developed an understanding of the direction this group would take, as well as a deeper understanding of each other's unique influences and how they would integrate.
