IT’S ABOUT TIME !

IT’S ABOUT TIME !

Omri Mor’s debut album comes at a point where his musical language is at a peak. After world-wide tours alongside some of the greatest contemporary musicians in Jazz, Classical and Arabo-andalusian music, here is a chance to dive into his own compositions, which encapsulate his diverse musical influences: ancient Algerian melodies colored by the intricate shades of Omri’s harmonies, North African rhythms intertwine with skillful Jazz improvisation.

This album is the emblem of a young pianist’s long standing fascination with musics of different worlds, which he brings together with masterful artistry and deep reverence.

ALBUM REVIEWS

Le jeu du pianiste, remarquablement accompagné, miroite de toutes ses touches sur son clavier polyphonique et polyrythmique. Un superbe cédé pour explorer d’autres territoires du jazz.
