“Innocent Dreamer” – Album Launch

One of Australia’s most prominent jazz saxophonists, Jamie Oehlers, teams up one of the hottest young jazz talents around, pianist Tal Cohen, to create some inspirational and thought provoking music.

The two have been performing together now for nearly 10 years in a variety of settings, teaming up with artists like Ari Hoenig and Robert Hurst and performing together in various ensembles. This setting allows for an exploration of melody and space, tone and dynamics.

This duo perform music from the great American songbook, as well as original material composed specifically for this project, Innocent Dreamer.
