The Oscillators is a unique and progressive group composed of some of DC's finest jazz musicians. The group seeks to break boundaries and forge a new sound in today’s ever-fragmented world of modern jazz. Their repertoire is almost exclusively original, the sound anchored by syncopated bass and drum rhythms that provide a strong canvas on which a guitar and tenor sax paint harmonies and colors, enhanced with live electronics.

The Oscillators- Charles Ostle (drums), Glen Oliff (bass), Matt Rippetoe (saxophone), and John Lee (guitar) all grew up and currently live in the greater Washington D.C
