The Omnibus provided an intimate space for this gig, close quarters in comfy chairs, listening to jazz. The perfect Sunday evening. Close enough to see the musicians flirt and communicate with one another, the wear on the double bass and the chinks on the piano keys.
 Tom Green along with Scott Chapman – drums, Misha Mullov-Abbado – double bass and Sam James – piano, slide effortlessly into their set. There is no clear beginning or end to this music, it just flows. Closing my eyes I can see a skyline changing as the music moves, conjuring scenes from dawn through to dusk. The members of the quartet are all in the septet and their new album Skyline is top of the ‘new jazz’ pile for me.
Green’s beautiful compositions from his Septet’s new album Skyline, that have been refined to work with just four musicians, do not lose their artistry. This is music that you won’t get tired of listening to. You are always able to find new facets and quirks.
The audience at the Omnibus were lucky, such intimacy is seldom achievable elsewhere. I will certainly be returning.
Check out Tom Green and Skyline for yourself here.
And if you fancy some music at the Omnibus.
