Oliver Mayman

Born:

An Ann Arbor, Michigan, native and current student at Philadelphia’s Temple University (as of 2020), Oliver Mayman is a vibraphonist, pianist, educator, and composer. Beginning drums at age 9 and piano at age 13, the vibraphone was an inevitable discovery as a teenager — the instrument essentially fusing the mechanics of drumming with the harmonic capabilities of the piano. By bringing his array of pianist influences such as Ethan Iverson, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, and McCoy Tyner and applying their concepts to the vibraphone, he truly treats the instrument as a piano, comfortable in every setting from solo to big band

Dynamic interaction and improvisation is the heart of everything on Try The Veal, which was recorded in late 2019 and early 2020

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
