Already scheduled to perform this Saturday for Washington University's Jazz at Holmes series, pianist Jay Oliver (pictured) has added more events to his trip home this week.
According to an email sent out by the Jazz at Holmes series, Oliver, a St. Louis native now living in Los Angeles, also will give a clinic/masterclass Monday, March 1 on the Wash U. campus and perform in a concert at 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 3 at the 560 Music Center, 560 Trinity Ave in University City.
Oliver will work with a different combination of musicians at each concert. For the Jazz at Holmes show on Saturday, Oliver will be play a solo set, then a second set backed by William Lenihan (guitars and bass) and Miles Vandiver (drums). The concert begins at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, February 27 in Holmes Lounge on the Washington University campus. Unlike most Jazz at Holmes shows, Oliver's concert will have an admission charge: $10 for the general public, $5 for Washington University students and staff, and $5 for seniors.
For the show at the 560 Music Center, Oliver and Lenihan will be joined by bassist Tom Kennedy and drummer Roger Guth. There's no ticket information on this show available yet, but we'll have an update here when details are released.
