Omar Lyefook MBE is one of the greatest soul music talents the United Kingdom has produced in the last 40 years. If anyone has doubts about that, then they might want to consider the list of legendary artists who happily line up to collaborate with him musically, or simply sing his praises – from Stevie Wonder, the late Leon Ware, Erykah Badu, Common, through to Carleen Anderson, D’Angelo, and Soul II Soul’s Caron Wheeler, Angie Stone and U.K. artists Courtney Pine, Rodney P, Kele LeRoc, Natasha Watts and Estelle. All appreciate his truly original and unique voice, musicianship and song writing talent. QCBA is the brainchild of Quentin Collins on trumpet and Brandon Allen on sax. They are a Hammond organ driven quartet of virtuosos playing smart, sassy, contemporary original music, influenced by the great Blue Note era of 1960s. Completing the line-up are the masterful Ross Stanley (organ) and Ian Thomas (drums). QCBA is known for collaborating with a broad range of artists such as Liane Carroll, Paloma Faith, Hamish Stuart and Natalie Williams, bringing together an eclectic audio melting pot of Jazz, Brazilian and Funk, which is always swinging! The evening celebrates the release of Omar + QCBA’s latest album, Live at Last, on the Ubuntu Music record label. Press Quotes: "This is precisely the kind of gig that is medicinal in every sense of the term. British soul legend Omar has long made music that can lift the spirits as well as impress with its ingenuity, and his meeting with a Grade-A jazz quartet co-led by trumpeter Quentin Collins and saxophonist Brandon Allen provides a welcome opportunity to appreciate that.” -- Jazzwise Magazine “The mix of Latin stylings, funk rhythms and soulful lyrics, paired with the jazz masters that are QCBA, made for an evening of high-class entertainment. The audience would agree that there’s ‘nothing like this’.”-- London Jazz News Advance tickets are £22.50 (£25 OTD) and can be purchased by clicking the 'Get Tickets' button.
