Omelette is an ensemble that features such seasoned performers in Jordan Murray (trombone), Stephen Magnusson (guitar), Mark Shepherd (bass), Ronny Ferella (drums) that it really doesn’t get much better than this.
With much shared musical history the Quartet enjoy the opportunity to shape their unique repertoire into a seamless musical journey keeping themselves open to play with no expectation
“The music of Omelette pivots between written and improvised music-making. The written serves to suggest a direction, feeling or colour, the improvised to see this idea and sound to the next one and so on. There is no expectation but to listen and trust. We like the music to dance and sing. We hear it as our folk music, made in the moment. Although influenced by all the music we listen to there is a nod to the folk music traditions of East and West Africa, Persia and Cuba, Miles Davis, Tony Allen and Ornette Coleman.”
On This Day is a wonderfully lush sound recording performed by exceptional players. Really, don’t miss it.
