Omelette is an ensemble that features such seasoned performers as 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 ensemble feel 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. Although influenced by all the music listened 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.
Omelette hear this as their folk music, made in the moment. On This Day is a wonderfully lush sound recording performed by exceptional players. Really, don’t miss it.
