Coming up on Jamie's radio show ... Interview with Omar

As reported here last month, Jamie's interview with British singer-songwriter Omar will be broadcast on June 11th.
The pair discuss Omar's latest album, and he performs the title track from the record along with a cover of the Duke Ellington jazz standard Satin Doll.
Omar tells Jamie about discovering that he could sing, being classically educated and the influence jazz, reggae and rare groove has on his music. The pair talk about creating improvised solos and scatting, plus Omar talks about working with bassist Pino Palladino and other artists on his latest album, and the influence that his dad's work as a session musician for top names in music has had on him.

Tune into Jamie's show every Tuesday at 7pm on BBC Radio 2.
