Review | Omar – ‘The Man’ (album)

Such is the consideration that UK artist Omar commands amongst his industry peers, working with some of the worlds greatest musicians such as Leon Ware, Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder in his time. It can only get better with ‘The Man‘, his newly released compilation.

Omar’s newest album “The Man” is a collection of funked out bass, heavy horns, topped with precise studio mixing and a soulful throwback arrangement for perks. Not to mention the charmingly uncommon vocal scales unique to the soulman himself, carefully selected to set your soul ablaze.

The compilation of thirteen tracks kicks off simple and steady. In fact, the foundation is set by a harmonic ballad entitled “Simplify” and is followed by leading track “The Man” for pace.

This high energy project sounds to be almost specifically tailored to correct any unwanted vibes in exchange of tapping feet and up-turned lips – Great for family events or car tunes. Be sure to keep an ear out for standout tracks “Bully” feat. The Scratch Professor and “High Heels” feat. Hidden Jazz Quartett as the subtle symphonies of abstract grooves play on.

Omar is an especially talented artist who is classically trained in piano, trumpet and various percussion instruments. His well-rounded musical knowledge and experience is truly reflected in his work, making his latest masterpiece well worth the seven-year wait. “The Man“, a title well deserved.

‘The Man’ is now available on iTunes.

Released by:
Freestyle Records |
