PODCAST: Kendrick Oliver

Berklee Office of Communications
August 1, 2008

Berklee alumnus Kendrick Oliver and his 19-piece New Life Jazz Orchestra has been described by Jazz Times magazine as "inventive, vital, and fresh." The group plays Count Basie-style swing with foot-stomping arrangements, high-octane rhythms, and an unrestrained brass section. Their take on "Wade in the Water" features Christian McBride on bass. 


Oliver and New Life will perform on Sunday, August 3, in a free outdoor concert in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.
