We welcome back one of the truly great improvising musicians, the fantastic and hugely influential alto saxophonist/composer Dick Oatts to Eastside Jazz Club.

Oatts moved to NYC in 1977 and joined the Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Orchestra. Since then, he has toured, recorded, and performed as a sideman in small groups with Bob Brookmeyer, Red Rodney, Eddie Gomez, Mel Lewis, Jerry Bergonzi, Joe Lovano, Dom Salvador, Vic Juris, Soren Moller, Terell Stafford, Ray Mantilla, Jon Faddis, David Berkman, Flim & the BBs, Ray Mantilla, Fred Hersch, Joe Morello, Lalo Schiffrin and several others.

"Dick Oatts is a jazz musician who has never taken the music for granted, became complacent, or stayed in one place. Decade after decade he's refined his art on bandstands and recording studios, as well as offered a wealth of wisdom to aspiring musicians in academic settings." Allaboutjazz.com
