Omar Lyefook MBE is one of the greatest soul music talents the UK has produced in the last 40 years.
If anyone has any doubts about this, then they might want to consider the list of legendary artists who happily line up to collaborate musically with him, or simply sing his praises - from Stevie Wonder, the late Leon Ware, Erykah Badu, Common, to Carleen Anderson, D'Angelo and Caron Wheeler of Soul II Soul, Angie Stone and UK artists Courtney Pine, Rodney P, Kele LeRoc, Natasha Watts and Estelle. All of them appreciate her truly original and unique voice, her musicality and her songwriting talent.QCBA is the brainchild of Quentin Collins on trumpet and Brandon Allen on saxophone. They are a quartet of virtuosos led by the Hammond organ playing smart and sassy contemporary original music influenced by the great Blue Note era of the 1960s.
The party celebrates the release of Omar + QCBA's latest album, Live at Last, on the Ubuntu Music label.
