Tom Ollendorff has a distinctive guitar sound, blending virtuosic playing with sophisticated harmonic and melodic ideas. With long-standing trio partners, drummer Marc Michel and bassist Conor Chaplin, they form a “…very classy” (The Guardian) outfit. Tom’s music elegantly mixes graceful grooving songlike themes, baroque-style etudes and headlong fast-bop swing.
Following on from their critically acclaimed (**4 Stars**) debut album A Song For You, their latest release Passing Ships – out in May – features New York Saxophonist Ben Wendel.
