Omar Hakim Legendary drummer Omar Hakim (Weather Report, Sting, Miles Davis, David Bowie, et al.) has teamed up with pianist extraordinaire Rachel Z, whose work with Wayne Shorter, Steps Ahead, and Peter Gabriel has earned her international recognition and acclaim from her peers and fans alike.

This musical partnership features the tasteful virtuosity and sensitivity of these Grammy Awarded musicians as they take you on an exciting journey performing some of the most creative and unique arrangements of chart-topping rock hits from the past 30 years as well as jazz standards.

Trio of OZ' musical presentation is built upon compositions by such artists as Duke Ellington, Depeche Mode, Wayne Shorter, Joni Mitchell, Judy Garland, Sting, Peter Gabriel, The Killers, Coldplay, Stone Temple Pilots, and Bjrk. These songs have been re-interpreted with imagination, a deep sense of groove, and a rich harmonic soundscape that is a launch pad for creative improvisation deeply rooted in the tradition of Jazz.

Omar and Rachel are joined by Maeve Royce on Acoustic Bass.
