Album Description

Omar Kamal goes back to the origins from where his passion for singing started. The world of jazz, swing, and blues inspired him at the age of 15 to evolve from a young pianist engrossed in the classical world of music to a singer/composer embarking on an exciting journey to showcase his music with his voice as the lead instrument. "In The Wee Small Hours", a jazz standard released in the 1950s by Frank Sinatra, has been recreated by Omar Kamal and his band as part of a new jazz album singing timeless classics and original compositions in that style. Produced in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Festival, the album titled Late Night Dreams with Omar Kamal will precede a world tour starting in New York at the world famous Jazz At Lincoln Center on October 9th. Omar Kamal commenting on the song: "This is where it all started…the exclusive world of jazz and ballads which has allowed me to dig deep into the hidden corners of the soul, and come out with expressions of that soul in the form of music and song." Lyrical Theme: "In the wee small hours of the morning, while the whole wide world is fast asleep, you lie awake and think about the girl, and never ever think of counting sheep…" “In The Wee Small Hours”, is available across all global digital and streaming platforms.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
