Ted Olsen Quartet

In the Dunsmore Jazz Room with enchanting lakeside views.

Modern Jazz

Fresh off a Midwest tour run, Olsen brings his fiery and emotive quartet back to the Dunsmore for a concert of original compositions and arrangements.

Ted Olsen – bass

Sophia Kickhofel – alto saxophone

Kavyesh Kaviraj – piano

Miguel Hurtado – drums

Ted Olson’s compositions create bright moments, with a penchant for melody and harmonic color, while still allowing for spontaneous interplay. His bass playing teems with rhythmic vitality and an optimistic spirit. Olsen’s music is steeped in jazz, but is not beholden to tradition—it is forward-looking, yet accessible. In 2019 Olsen was named an alternate to the prestigious International Society of Bassists’ Jazz Bass Competition, and the next year he received a McKnight Artist Fellowship in Composition.

“The sprawling yet cohesive songcraft on Ted Olsen’s new album, Joyfire attests to why he won an American Composers Forum award five years ago and followed it up as a finalist for the ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Awards in 2015.” –- Star Tribune
