Andrew Oh – Essence of Oh

Andrew-Oh-Essence-of-Oh-CD-CoverAndrew Oh stands out as extremely accomplished saxophonist of international standard. His musical background and experience span almost three continents. Originally from Singapore, Andrew’s interest in music begun in the early 1970’s when he learnt to master a wide variety of woodwind instruments and a variety of percussion instruments.

Originally released in Australia with wide acclaim, Andrew released his debut album CD, Silk, with Devine Music (Australia ), which received great success in Australia and Asia and led to a recording contract with an American company, Honest Entertainment in Nashville ( USA ). His second self titled CD charted in the top 20 of the Gavin Smooth Jazz charts in America and received excellent reviews and extensive airplay in the US and Canada.

Essence of Oh is his first flute album in 2021 which also features his tenor and soprano saxophone talent. Andrew’s Roland Aerophone also added the colors of muted trumpet, harmonica, accordion and string pads. The music on this new album demonstrates Andrew’s versatility playing various instruments with the passion and expressiveness unique to his personal style. This recording is a fusion of jazz, soul, blues and Latin combined to deliver a whole new direction in improvised music.

The album is available on all digital platforms. Physical copies are on sale at Andrew’s website.
