No discs yet for O.S.L.O. But many projects!
At the service of music the group « O.S.L.O. « Found his identity. In turn, each musician occupies space without ever monopolizing it. Clarinets and saxophones are expressed in total complementarity. Piano and guitars unite their strings. The drum-percussion captures the echoes of each instrument in turn and as a sampler uses them to construct its rhythmic melodies. The group « O.S.L.O. « Synthesizes many facets of jazz and builds his own whose rainbow colors amaze.
