Ceremony is a major new project, the fruit of pianist-composer Omar Sosa's first big-band collaboration with composer-arranger-cellist Jaques Marelenbaum, Hamburg's 18-piece NDR Bigband and the Omar Sosa Quartet featuring Julio Barreto (drums), Childo Tomas (electric bass), and Marcos Ilukan (Afro-Cuban percussion). Omar's newest release acknowledges the majesty of legendary Afro-Cuban big bands of Frank "Machito" Grillo, Chico O'Farrell and Dizzy Gillespie, while extending those revered traditions in a contemporary salute to the expansive universe of world jazz, wherein Sosa himself continues to reign as a joyous, generous, abundant, and essential creative spirit.
