Omar Sosa Afri-Lectric Sextet
Omar Sosa’s new project began as a commission from the Barcelona Jazz Festival in 2009. The assignment: to compose and produce a tribute performance to Miles Davis’ classic recording, Kind Of Blue, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
The featured horn players are Joo Kraus on trumpet (Germany), Leandro Saint-Hill on saxophones and flute (Cuba), and Peter Apfelbaum on saxophones and percussion (U.S.A.). Omar’s longtime rhythm section, Marque Gilmore on drums (U.S.A.) and Childo Tomas on electric bass (Mozambique), create the foundation.
