Omar, Omar by Omar Sosa

Omar Sosa has created a very special collection of original jazz solo piano compositions for the intricate and harmonically exciting CD release titled OMAR, OMAR. It showcases the talent that is Omar Sosa, perfectly.

There are 14 selections, among them are "Remember The Clave," "Muevete In D," "Breezes," "Campos Verdes," "My Three Notes," "Otra Cosa," "Rain Falls." Each one is unique. I found something likeable and memorable about each song.

What is amazing about Omar Sosa's piano performances on this CD is his complex style, emphasis on note clusters, verve, and attention to harmonic detail. A beginning jazz pianist could learn much from listening to and studying the phrasing and techniques of Omar Sosa!

This is a flawless recording, featuring the composer at the piano, and each composition is a reflection of the quality and verve of the remarkable man at the keyboard. Those who enjoy jazz solo piano will find much enjoyment and wonder in the keyboard magic of Omar Sosa in OMAR, OMAR. A highly unusual, eclectic collection of jazz piano pieces.
