Jeff Oster – Miles Davis meets Pink Floyd- Album Release Party featuring Michael Manring
Thursday, June 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$12 - $15
With a dynamic new age/jazz/prog rock hybrid vibe often whimsically described as “Miles Davis meets Pink Floyd,” Jeff Oster has, since his 2005 award winning full length debut Released, shapeshifted the boundaries and redefined the sonic possibilities of instrumental pop music.
His boundary bursting, accolade filled career reached a dynamic peak in 2017-18 as a member of FLOW, a dynamic ensemble (featuring genre greats Fiona Joy, Lawrence Blatt and legendary Windham Hill founder and guitarist Will Ackerman) whose self-titled collection hit the Top 5 on the Billboard New Age Albums chart and won Album of the Year at the ZMR Awards and Best New Age album at the Independent Music Awards. For the inventive trumpeter and flugelhornist, there was only one way to follow up on this success – Reach!
For Oster and his chief collaborator/album producer Ruslan Sirota (who also plays piano, keyboards, guitar and provides vocals), the title Reach doubles as a powerful mission statement. It means breaking from Oster’s past tried and true studio approach of the past and engaging in a deeper exploration of the horn player’s artistry. Over the course of nine tracks, the result is a transcendent chill/ambient/new age meets sensual and grooving jazz/world fusion vibe where truly and radically, there are no creative boundaries. The first single from Reach is “Troppo Y Boffo,” a densely percussive Jobim-inspired dance jam filled with the spirit of Rio.
Although the album was primarily recorded with Los Angeles based musicians at Stagg Street Studio and The People’s Recording studio, fans of Oster’s previous Ackerman-produced albums – including Released (2005), True (2007) and Next (2015) – will note an important through-line. Reach was mastered by Tom Eaton at Ackerman’s famed Imaginary Road Studios, where Oster has also worked on countless sessions for other new age artists.
