The Trio of Oz

Artist: 
The Trio of Oz
Label: 
Ozmosis Records

Yeah the name is gimmicky, but it's the good kind of gimmicky; you know, the kind that makes you go, “Hm, I like that, and it is just clever enough to pique my interest,” as opposed to, well, lame-ness. Anyway, The Trio of Oz is essentially the brainchild of pianist Rachel Z and drummer Omar Hakim – whom collectively have worked with Dire Straits, Sting and Peter Gabriel; which does not necessarily speak tomes to me but it does go to show these are (1) experienced professionals that (2) have quite the range of musical abilities.
