About The Jazz Quartet

Our Jazz Quartet promises a variety of jazz genres beloved by Filipino jazz enthusiasts and jazz lovers alike. They are extremely talented in playing jazz subgenres such as standards, original, R&B, and fusion. Highly enthusiastic and entertaining, the group is perfect for galas, dinner reception, corporate functions, and other private events that need live music and entertainment. The Los Angeles-based group is led by multi-awarded musical director-composer Winston Raval and features Charmaine Clamor with vocalists Eric Baul and Trina Marana.

Winston Raval was bestowed by the Mannuunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino with the first Natatanging Gawad Urian in 2018 title to a film scorer. “Raval introduced a new musical idiom to Philippine Cinema,” says MPP. He also received a life-time achievement award from both the San Francisco Filipino-American Jazz Festival and the L.A. based JazzPhil-USA in recognition of his artistry and contribution to Filipino Jazz.

Celebrated by The New York Times as “a gifted vocalist” and by Los Angeles Times as “one of the important and original new jazz singer of the decade,” Filipino-American recording artist and cultural trailblazer Charmaine Clamore has earned her Queen of Jazzipino crown. With three consecutive albums in the Jazz Week World Music Top-20, she simultaneously made Top-5 on both the World and Traditional Jazz radio charts.

Eric Baul is a Los Angeles based baritone who loves to “Jazz mez around.” His repertoire includes an intoxicating concoction of jazz standards and jazzed-up popular and R&B tunes. He has been performing in the L.A. scene for the past decade at venues that include the world famous Catalina Jazz Club and Gardenia Supper Club to name a few.

With roots in soul, R&B and jazz, Trina Marana, a Los Angeles based artist released her debut album in 2015 titled Straight Ahead together with Winston Raval and Eric Baul. She uses her music to help the less fortunate children of the Philippines. She is also being recognized by the Maxx Promo’s as Best Jazz Artist for 2019.

When we were considering how we would handle the music for the ceremony and the reception of our daughter's wedding, My questions were answered when I heard the Ocdamia strings playing at the food tasting at coyote Hills country club. We felt like we were listening to what exceeded our expectations. I found through the decision process , Working with the staff gave me a sense of trust with the kind of people I could be comfortable with and trust. Next the details that took place to make sure that every step of the ceremony and the reception were handled correctly was accomplished with intentional diligence to ensure our satisfaction. Working with one source for the ceremony and the reception simplified this portion of our one in a lifetime events. I believe you will be Extremely grateful for choosing this team for any event you may have.

The Ocdamia Strings were amazing at our wedding. We hired a three-piece jazz group and they learned all our chosen songs and had a great jazz repertoire at the reception. All of our guests really liked the band and complimented them. We had an amazing night thanks to the wonderful music!
