OMELETTE PLAYS ORNETTE
Omelette is a repertoire band. They only play pieces by Ornette Coleman, a musician that needs no further introduction. They focus on his more obscure compositions, from the ’70s and ’80s, mainly from Ornette’s group Prime Time. But some of the standards might make an appearance.
Omelette treats the compositions as a starting point for their improvisations. In no way they try to recreate the music, this is definitely not a cover band. Ornette’s compositions work particularly well when they’re interpreted in new and wayward ways.
