As the summer festival season begins, drummer and composer Ollie Howell makes his first appearance at Jazz Fest Wien

Appearing on a line-up that includes Herbie Hancock, Dee Dee Bridgewater and George Benson, Ollie and his band perform at the celebrated Porgy & Bess on 4 July. 

Performing material from his new album Self-Identity described as “atmospheric and exploratory” (Echoes Magazine), the band will also include tunes from debut Sutures and Stitches demonstrating why Jimmy Cobb — the drummer on Miles Davis’s masterpiece Kind of Blue — said that Ollie is “loaded with talent”.
