“Sosa’s Davis-like reputation as an uncompromising artist who does his own thing, regardless of trends, makes him a perfect choice for this project, and he does not disappoint. It’s stunning!”

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. Inspired by various musical elements and motifs from Miles Davis’ Kind Of Blue, Omar wrote a suite of music honoring the spirit of freedom in Davis’ seminal work. Featuring trumpet and saxophone, Sosa’s recent recording; Eggun, provides a medium for musical elements from Africa to shape and develop the music. The resulting jazz textures are further enhanced by the subtle and expressive use of electronic elements. At the heart of the recording is the spirit of Mother Africa.
