OMAR:
UK Soul Legend returns to Jazz Cafe for Special Valentine’s show to showcase his new album.

The Nu Soul master Omar entered the UK charts with his first album “There’s Nothing Like This”. From then on he was a key player in bringing Soul music back to it’s most potent form & in what would become the Nu Soul scene. Artists such as Stevie Wonder & India Arie sight Omar as a favourite artist.

Omar has just re released Sing [If You Want It] on Tru Thoughts, the British soul supremo’s sixth and perhaps funkiest album so far. Featuring guest appearances from Stevie Wonder, Angie Stone, Common, Estelle, Rodney P, JC Bentley, Canitbe, Ashman + Zed Bias. A brilliant collection of tracks/artists that manages to break new ground yet at the same time re-establishes that unmistakable, unique Omar signature sound.

Omar has been busy touring, acting (Lovesong) + finalising album no 7 ‘The Man’ which will feature a new version of ‘There’s Nothing Like This’ marking its 20th anniversary as well as receiving a MOBO nomination.

2012 is sure to be another busy year for Omar.
