Omar teams up with his decade-long partnership of QCBA, featuring the outstanding trumpet player Quentin Collins and the tenor sax titan Brandon Allen, for an intoxicating musical cocktail of jazz, R&B, funk and soul.
QCBA are an organ driven quartet of virtuosos known for their smart, sassy, contemporary and original music. Influenced by the great Blue Note era of the 60s, they’ve taken the jazz scene by storm with their eclectic collaborations. When QCBA team up with Omar, they deliver an explosion of soul-funk infused music.
Rounding out the band are two absolutely exceptional talents: Ross Stanley, arguably the best Hammond organist in the country, and James Maddren, certainly one of the most sought-after drummers in jazz today.
Commenting on the upcoming project, Omar shared his thoughts: “I’m very excited to extend my collaboration with these great jazz musicians onto a live recording and share this fresh approach to my music with my fans.”
Quentin Collins"I'm excited to have this opportunity to further develop my longstanding musical relationships with both Omar and Ubuntu Music. For so long now I've been a huge admirer of both Omar's incredible voice as well as his unique song writing style. Having collaborated together for over 10 years, it makes a lot of sense to put down on record QCBA's arrangements of some of Omar’s great songs."
