One of Britain’s foremost tenor and soprano saxophonists, Andy Sheppard has had a long and distinguished career, working with leading lights in the jazz world including Randy Brecker, Gil Evans, Carla Bley and George Russell. Keen to popularise jazz, he was also part of the first Western jazz group to play in Outer Mongolia.

Oris launched the first Jazz watch at the 1996 jazz festival, dedicated to the saxophonist and composer who constantly seeks out and explores new influences with unfailing instinct and style.
