    Omar Sosa: April 21st - 27th

    As an 8-year-old, Omar Sosa studied percussion at his local conservatory. His piano-playing has its roots in Cuban music, with hints of Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea and Chopin. The Grammy-nominee recently recorded a contemplative, neo-classical solo CD while artist-in-residence in New York. Hear selections from the Senses album all this week on BLUE...
