Bembon by Omar Sosa

Pianist/composer Omar Sosa scores high with his collection of original compositions on the CD titled BEMBOM. His impressionistic piano stylings are perfect and tasteful examples of the new Cuban sound emerging! The song, "Para Dos Parados," featuring the excellent vocals of Maria Marquez, is an example of what Omar Sosa is capable of creating within the framework of a 6:22 minute song! Terrific showcase song for his unique gifts as a jazz pianist.

There are 11 selections on the CD. "Negros," "Marimchacha," "Juntos," "Narcisa Con Yalode," "Bembon," are among some of the exciting songs in this collection!

It would be nice to see Omar Sosa do a solo piano CD in the near future, a collection that would focus entirely on his gifts as a solo pianist. He is one of the finest Cuban jazz pianists to come along, a storehouse of talent, and a gifted composer.

For something different, and definitely contemporary jazz Cuban style, try Omar Sosa's BEMBON. Omar Sosa is a great talent!
