O’s Notes: Omar Hakim is an experienced drummer who has laid down beats for countless jazz, rock and R&B artists. For We Are One he assembles a fine band including guitarist Chieli Minucci, Gregoire Maret (harmonica), Rachel Z (synths) and bassist Jerry Brooks. Omar had a hand in writing all of the music, an earthy contemporary jazz-fusion that touches rock, funk and jazz. Highlights are “So There”, “Listen Up!” and “Forever Friend”. Hakim doesn’t miss a beat with sharp punctuated accents that have kept him on most musicians speed dial as first call percussionist.
