News from Eric Olsen

I have been in love with the sounds of classical and jazz music all my life.  In this album I have tried to alchemize the raw materials contained in each musical genre into an exciting new art experience that transcends musical boundaries. I re-imagined the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic structure of the original musical works so that an innovative and completely natural jazz conception might emerge.  Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea,and Keith Jarrett are some of the influences that have shaped my work as a jazz arranger.

The ReVision Quartet has realized my arrangements in a stunningly beautiful way; the rapport between the musicians is superb. I am grateful to each and every one of these gifted musicians for their deep commitment to my music.  

THe arrangements include works by Chopin, Grieg, Sibelius, Messiaen, Bizet, Gershwin, Faure, and George Harrison of the Beatles.  The common denominator is the "Sea Changes" that bring the original works into a completely new musical dimension.

Stay tuned for more information on Sea Changes!
