Omar Sosa – Dame Un Tiempo – Live In Bremen 2000

On 31 October 2000, Cuban jazz pianist Omar Sosa gave an extraordinary concert at Bremen’s Schlachthof with a magnificent band, including US rapper and hip-hopper Sub-Z. Sosa’s musical work covers an enormous range. Of course, his music is characterized by his musical roots and his Cuban origins, but the basis is formed by Latin Jazz and Afro-Cuban rhythms as well as traditional North African music, which he likes to combine with elements of merengue, salsa, soul, funk, classical music and even hip hop. In other words: Omar Sosa is always exciting, especially live. This was also ensured by the superb backing band that accompanied Omar alongside Sub-Z at this concert from the Bremen Schlachthof: saxophonist Sheldon Brown, bassist Geoff Brennan, percussionist Gustavo Ovalles and drummer Elliott Kavee. Omar has fond memories of the Schlachthof concert: “I must confess that upon listening to this recording, so many beautiful memories came flooding back. Memories of a moment in which each of the musicians in the group defended jazz as a philosophy of freedom. We really had a great time!!!”
