Mister Ott is Sydney's newest live sensation, an ingenious sextet strutting a heady mix of African inspired jazz and funk, led by superb saxophonist/ composer Matt Ottignon.
This is a six piece band playing original music inspired by the music of East Africa, in particular, of Ethiopia. Under the vibrant guidance of Mathew Ottignon, Mister Ott plays a mixture of original tunes composed by the leader, trumpeter Ellen Kirkwood, pianist Daniel Pliner along with some beautiful compositions by Ethiopian saxophone master Getatchew Merkurya and the "father" of Ethiopian jazz Mulatu Astatke.
Matching Mathew Ottignon's fearless excursions on tenor and baritone sax is one of the most exciting talents on the Sydney music scene, guitarist Ben Panucci.
The music moves from raging torrents of sounds to funk-laced, danceable jazz, to tender ballads of surpassing beauty.
