Seeing him is a must! After years of praise for his CDs, it was only at last year’s Jazzahead! in Bremen that we had the pleasure of experiencing Ola Onabulé live for the first time. Under the auspice of jazz historiography, we were ravished to make the following remark: A lesson in “how to control natural vocal qualities?”
The charismatic singer with his plastic, infinitely elastic, elegant voice which shimmers in all timbres from blue to black, manages to spice one song with more facets of expressivity than someone else would display in an entire Œuvre.
Trying to assign a particular style to the gentleman and vocal acrobat poses quite a challenge. The London-based singer of Nigerian descent has somehow managed to merge into a unique alloy the poetry of singer-songwriter, the sophistication of jazz, the dramatic emotionality of soul, the ease of pop music, and the originality of his Nigerian roots. One could classify him as a bronze, far from the broad, suggestive highways of world music.
And soon the rising star will be as sought after as Gregory Porter.
He has already been well-known to connoisseurs for his collaboration with renowned orchestras such as the WDR Big Band, the SWR Big Band, or the HR Big Band. And only recently he played songs from his latest CD, The Peace That Deafens, with the legendary Danish Radio Big Band. Some of the numbers were even arranged by Ed Partyka, head of the Jazz department at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.
