Now and then a collaboration comes along that grabs your attention - Ola Onabule and The Hazelrigg Brothers / Jazz In Europe

Now and then a collaboration comes along that grabs your attention and earlier this week this is exactly what happened when the new EP from vocalist Ola Onabule and The Hazelrigg Brothers hit our mailbox. Ola Onabule is, of course, no stranger to Jazz In Europe readers however The Hazelrigg Brothers maybe a little less known and we expect that this release will somewhat change that perspective.

For those readers not familiar with Ola Onabule, a simple Google search will deliver enough material to keep your eyes and ears busy for quite some time.  However, I think it appropriate to metaphorically delve a little deeper into the Hazelriggs. The Hazelrigg Brothers consist of George and Geoff Hazelrigg, both Pennsylvania based musicians, and together with drummer John O'Reilly have formed a piano trio for several years. I first became aware of the group through pianist and producer Jason Miles who tipped me on their last album "Songs We Like". I can honestly say after the first listen I was sold and felt compelled to reach out to them to find out more. The interview with the brothers can be read here.
