The Trio of OZ in the Studio!

finally we have recorded 5 tracks and so many interesting explorations are taking place…new gear unleashes new ideas…new harmony and melody. We will take our time and record into June…this way we can develop a new sound and hopefully capture the growth of the band in this adventure… We welcome a few cover compositions but mostly Rachel, Omar have contributed new original material thus far.

Ableton is proving a great writing tool! 

 

                

  Omar has a great rack full of excellent processors and mike pres and he is doing a great job engineering along with the help of Rich Tozzoli master engineer and dear friend!

They are quite a production team!  Soon…Featuring our new best friend the Fazioli 278!

TTOZ an Exotic and Magical Musical Trip

Trio of Oz at Wilson Center for the Arts
It has nothing to do with a land over a rainbow, but The Trio of Oz finds something exotic and magical in the music of your life. This stellar jazz trio (members have played with everyone from Miles Davis to David Bowie) only occasionally dabbles in standards of the distant past – a Gershwin ballad or an old blues shuffle. Instead, you’re more likely to find pianist Rachel Z building a solo on the chorus of The Smiths’ “There Is a Light” or drummer Omar Hakim chattering behind the melody of “Angry Chair” by Alice in Chains. They’re not the only jazz group tackling contemporary rock and pop, but they do it with a clean elegance and a devilish sense of fun.

➞ The Trio of Oz (Feb. 9). Wilson Center for the Arts. Harris Theater. 19805 W. Capitol Dr., Brookfield, 262-781-9520, wilson-center.com.
