    Andrew Downing’s Otterville

    “…superb arrangements that blur the instrumental tones into a dream-like luminescent whole.” All About Jazz

    Otterville is Andrew Downing’s foray into the complex simplicity of his ancestral Tobacco Belt lineage. The music is nostalgic, evocative, peaceful and humourous, finding influence from Kurt Weill, Billy Strayhorn, Erik Satie and Bill Frisell. The magical layering of lap steel guitar, vibraphone, cello, saxophone, bass and drums creates the backdrop for the subtleness of the music to quietly squeeze the listener into emotional submission. The group’s debut double CD, simply called Otterville, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim including a JUNO nomination.

    featuring

    Andrew Downing - cello

    Christine Bougie - lap steel

    Michael Davidson - vibraphone

    Tara Davidson - alto saxophone

    Paul Mathew - bass

    Nick Fraser - drums
