30 Records

50 years OM! The band wrote history from 1972 to 1982 combining the energy of rock music with the power of free improvisation. With enormous vitality they bring together the experiences of a young generation electrified by Jimi Hendrix, fascinated by John Coltrane and inspired by free jazz. OM brought rock music into spontaneous musical processes with uncertain endings. After a long break from touring, the band returned in 2008 with a brilliant concert at the Willisau Jazz Festival. After another break, they presented the 2020 album "It's About Time". Now OM reinvents itself again and presents a brilliant musical statement for their 50th anniversary. "There are moments all over their records when I find myself in an incredible polyrhythmic thicket or deep cosmic space, and I pause, thinking, "Wait, how did we get here?" That's OM to me. With decades of growth and exploration, together and separately, OM are making their best music right now," writes Jason Bivins in the liner notes.
