Innocent Dreamers Cd Launch

 

One of Australia’s most prominent jazz saxophonists, Jamie Oehlers, teams up one of the hottest young jazz talents around, pianist Tal Cohen, to create some inspirational and thought provoking music. The two have been performing together now for nearly 10 years in a variety of settings, teaming up with artists like Ari Hoenig and Robert Hurst and performing together in various ensembles. This duo setting allows for an exploration of melody and space, tone and dynamics. This concert is a release of their new CD, “Innocent Dreamer”, recorded at the ABC and containing original compositions alongside some well known jazz standards.

 

In 2003 Jamie was the winner of the World Saxophone Competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival and has won numerous awards in Australia, including “Bell” Awards for Best Australian Jazz Artist and Best Album, an ABC Limelight Award for Best Jazz Release, a James Morrison Scholarship, an Australian Young Achiever of the Year Award, and has twice been a finalist in the Australian Recording Industry Award’s for Best Jazz Album. His career has seen him lead groups throughout the UK, US, Europe and Asia, promoting the 12 CD’s he has produced as leader.

Now based in the US, Tal Cohen's unique piano style owes its roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music he played in his formative years growing up in Gedera, Israel. He graduated from WAAPA in 2008 and immediately began accumulating awards and prestigious performance opportunities. He was the 2015 winner of the Freedman Fellowship Award and in 2014 won the Barry Harris Piano Competition in the US. He has become a regular performer with iconic jazz figures such as Terence Blanchard, Greg Osby and Robert Hurst and continues to tour the world performing his unique brand of improvised music.
