New jazz compositions and improvisations from a quartet with delusions of grandeur – The Oblivious 8.


- Jeff Henderson – saxophones
- Jonathan Crayford – piano
- Eamon Edmundsen-Wells – bass
- Steve Cournane – drums

The Oblivious 8 play original compositions inspired by Filmic noir, Gnawa trance, Bulbous Bebop, Fast Fisted Fury, Steamy late ‘90s nightclub jazzfunk lite, Schadenfreude, Spoonbending and the pantheon of pan-tonal, harmoniaical sound explorers from past, present and future.

The band is a reunion of separate parts, Jeff Henderson and Jonathan Crayford first played together in Wellington 25 years ago, Henderson and Steve Cournane in Dunedin 30 years ago, Crayford and Eamon Edmundsen-Wells 1 year ago and so on it goes. Between them the group has performed with such esteemed figures as Steve Lacy, David Murray, Mike Nock, Kenny Rogers, The Verlaines, Marg Layton, Leila Adu, Bernie McGann, Jay Clarkson and many more.
