Bill Ohashi

Bill's arranging style and watchful direction give 'The Bridge Sextet and the new “Mambo Jazzi” their characteristic sound, all of which stems from Bill's many influences from his years of associations with such important groups.

Bill’s early experiences included working with Willie Colon, Eddie Palmieri, Larry Harlow, Machito, and great jazz & pop leaders such as Slide Hampton, Bruce Fowler (Frank Zappa), Ray Charle's Big Band, Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, Charlie Mingus, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Eddie Kendricks & The Temptations, Gil Evans, Franki Valli & The Four Seasons.
