About the featured composer:

Described as “elegant, beautiful, sophisticated, intense, and crystal clear in emotional intent,” the music of Omar Thomas continues to move listeners everywhere it is performed. Born to Guyanese parents in Brooklyn, New York in 1984, Omar Thomas has been hailed by Herbie Hancock as showing “great promise as a new voice in the further development of jazz in the future.” While completing his Master of Music Degree, he was appointed the position of Assistant Professor of Harmony at Berklee College of Music at the surprisingly young age of 23. In 2012, Omar was named the Boston Music Award’s “Jazz Artist of the Year.”
