Tomoko Omura Quartet
Tomoko Omura is among today's leading voices in jazz violin. "Roots", her debut album for Inner Circle Music, is a compelling tribute to her native Japan, featuring original arrangements of ten classic Japanese folk and popular songs. In the words of fellow violinist Christian Howes, "'Roots' is a tremendous accomplishment, and undoubtedly one of the most important and creative jazz albums produced by a violinist in recent history." Downbeat magazine calls Tomoko "a leader with a fine future", awarding "Roots" 4 and a half stars. Her latest release, "Post Bop Gypsies" (Inner Circle, 2017), is a contemporary jazz trio album in the classic Gypsy jazz instrumentation of violin, guitar and bass. Since 2015, she has been named a "Rising Star" in Downbeat magazine's prestigious Critic's Poll for the past consecutive years.
