The Bungalow Jazz House concerts are brimming this Fall with a plethora of amazing jazz talent throughout the rest of the year. This Wednesday features the Bryan Olsheski Quartet with Bryan on sax, Erik Augis on piano, Derek DiCenzo on bass and Reggie Jackson on drums. Bobby Floyd was originally scheduled to perform for this concert but he is on the road as the new pianist with the Count Basie Band, quite an honor! If you’ve never been to Becky Ogden’s 5th avenue “Jazz Bungalow” you are in for a treat. The warm cozy 1910 bungalow sits on an acre ravine lot on East Fifth Avenue, and is a one of a kind experience for live jazz performances.
Bryan Olsheski is a top call saxophonist in Columbus and has shared the stage with some of the most famous names in jazz such as Joe Henderson, Kenny Garrett, Wess “Warmdaddy” Anderson, Conrad Herwig, Jack McDuff, Slide Hampton and George Benson. He has also been a featured soloist for The Temptations, The Columbus Jazz Orchestra, Steve Winwood, Vaughn Wiester’s Famous Jazz Orchestra, Afro-Rican Jazz Ensemble, Kico Cowan and Expresion Cubana, The Four Tops and The Spinners. Living in Columbus, Ohio for the past several years has enabled Bryan to dedicate himself more to composing and perfecting his craft. In High School Bryan was selected as a featured soloist with State Jazz and Orchestra ensembles. Having received the Louis Armstrong Outstanding High School Soloist Award and a scholarship to attend the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshop, the saxophonist knew his purpose.
