Album Notes
"Confirmation" followed the Grammy nominated "Ceora" only to be the final trumpet/flugelhorn effort of then 14year old jazz trumpet star Oliver Hunt.

Following a lip injury later the same year, Oliver was forced to abandoned a meteoric rise to the top of the trumpet ladder. He did, however, record what has been acknowledged a a jazz masterpiece in "Confirmation".

While displaying a distinct Clifford Brown influence on trumpet, his flugelhorn sound retained aspects of early Miles while at the same time displaying a wholly modern and fully developed approach that resulted in a CD of unparralled beauty.

Oliver has since resumed a carrer on tenor saxaphone. We at Xenophon look forward to releasing his tenor debut CD later this year.

What is Jazz?
What is Jazz? Imagine you were to find your own way to the roots of what you might term natural Jazz. Where would you then begin? You could of course go back to the beginning of Jazz. Or you could listen to Oliver Hunt. Every new Jazz player has to start his or hers musical journey somewhere. That means that everything from formal elements to performance skills usually have a much higher degree of naturalness. Oliver was no doubt a gifted and highly skilled performer. Considering the development of his musical language, he was about to make himself a promising career as a professional trumpet player - and would in time perhaps have succeeded in establishing himself as one of the world's great trumpet players. Even though Oliver Hunt only managed to play the trumpet on two of his own CD's before his career ending lip injury, they are nevertheless a very important contribution to the history of Jazz. Because of his by then young age Oliver was closer to the original sources than he would have been today, had he still played the trumpet. There is a wonderful, natural easiness about his melodic ideas that you will not be able to find elsewhere. Oliver Hunt's connection with his sources flows like a river in the landscape of a traditional Jazz quartet setting where each player in turn is highlighted and contributes with admirable improvisation. The "Ceora" and "Confirmation" albums are indispensable for all true Jazz fans!
