Andrew Downing’s Otterville

“…superb arrangements that� blur the instrumental tones into a dream-like luminescent whole.” All About Jazz

Otterville is Andrew Downing’s foray into the complex simplicity of his ancestral Tobacco Belt lineage. The music is nostalgic, evocative, peaceful and humourous, finding influence from Kurt Weill, Billy Strayhorn, Erik Satie and Bill Frisell. The magical layering of lap steel guitar, vibraphone, cello, saxophone, bass and drums creates the backdrop for the subtleness of the music to quietly squeeze the listener into emotional submission. The group’s debut double CD, simply called Otterville, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim including a JUNO nomination.
