OU with Amy Denio LIVE on KBOO

A Jazz World
program date: 
Wed, 10/15/2014

OU is genius. They take you on a Mediterranean joyride of vivacious original compositions with folk sensibility, jazz with fiercely funky rhythms, topped with gorgeously lush vocals, sung in Sardinian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English.

Based in Rome, Italy, the three women are Sardinian, the three men pure Romans. Bass drums and piano form the lively rhythm section ~ then trumpet, sax, ukelele, glockenspiel and 6 glorious voices weave themselves over the contagious rhythms.

Amy Denio (rhymes with ‘Ohio’ or ‘gennaio’) is a composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist, audio engineer, international collaborator, and record producer. Her main instruments are voice, accordion, alto saxophone, clarinet, electric guitar, and bass, and she's a budding thereminist. She has played at festivals, churches, schools, prisons and mercury mines throughout East & West Europe and North America, as well as in Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Brazil, and Argentina.
