[ELECTRIC JAZZ] Soon-to-depart Portland jazz pianist and composer Andrew Oliver’s electric-jazz quintet may have its visual worries, but its ear is working just fine. With groovy pop hooks and toe-tapping rhythms, the Ocular Concern makes unapologetically fun, concise and original jazz. Meanwhile, on its new album, The Wishbone Suite, former Seattle trombonist and composer and current Juilliard student Andy Clausen’s chamber-jazz quintet reveals remarkable range, from gentle, pensive accordion-enhanced moments to rhythmically robust, clarinet-charged escapades. One of jazz’s most promising young compositional talents, Clausen has worked with Benny Golson, Wynton Marsalis (who’s performed Clausen’s music), Bill Frisell, Joe Lovano and other jazz greats.
