Product Notes

The Oscillators is a unique and progressive group composed of some of DC's top jazz musicians. The group seeks to break boundaries and forge a new sound in today's ever-fragmented world of modern jazz. The Oscillators' repertoire is almost exclusively original, it's sound anchored by syncopated bass and drum rhythms that provide a strong canvas on which the guitar and tenor sax paint harmonies and colors, enhanced with samples and live electronics. The collective sound is a tapestry of interwoven rhythms and textures that provide the listener an engaging and innovative sound. The music is a dichotomy of complexity and simplicity, and is an amalgamation of the group's influences and experiences. The Oscillators- Charles Ostle (drums), Glen Oliff (bass), Matt Rippetoe (saxophone), and John Lee (guitar) all grew up and currently live in the greater Washington DC area. The group first came together in 2006 and have been actively developing their unique sound ever since. In 2007 The Oscillators won Takoma Park's annual Jazz Band Brawl and headlined that summer's Takoma Park Jazz Festival. The group's first CD was released in 2008 and is entitled Beat Tectonics, which alludes to the dynamic rhythmic shifts that occur within the music.
