Omar Sosa, will be at Helsinki Hudson on Thursday, November 10 with his JOG Trio, featuring award-winning German trumpet player Joo Kraus and renowned percussionist Manolo Badrena.
Joo Kraus was featured on Omar Sosa’s GRAMMY-nominated Miles Davis “Kind of Blue” tribute CD, “EGGUN” (2012). Manolo Badrena is famous for his work with the seminal jazz-fusion group Weather Report in 1976-77.
The Trio, exemplifying Omar’s philosophy of jazz as freedom, is improvisation-based, each player bringing his musical roots to the collective experience. Omar and Joo both use various electronic effects and samples, and Joo contributes occasional spoken word vocals. The Trio’s repertoire includes a number of Omar’s signature compositions – “My Three Notes”, “Light In The Sky”, and “Muevete en D” – as well as material from its new CD, “JOG”, which received a 4.5-star review in Downbeat magazine.
Showtime: 8:00 PM • Tickets: $25 advance / $30 door
