The Trio of OZ

The Trio of OzLegendary drummer Omar Hakim from Weather Report, Sting, Miles Davis and David Bowie has teamed up with pianist extraordinaire Rachel Z; whose work with such artists as Wayne Shorter, Steps Ahead, and Peter Gabriel has earned her international recognition and acclaim from her peers and fans alike.

This exciting musical partnership features the tasteful virtuosity and sensitivity of these Grammy Award winning musicians as they take you on an exciting journey performing some of the most creative and unique arrangements of jazz standards and chart topping rock hits of the past 30 years.

These songs have been re-interpreted with imagination, a deep sense of groove and a rich harmonic soundscape that is a launch pad for creative improvisation deeply rooted in the tradition of Jazz.
