EXTRA EXTRA! EXTRA EXTRA! The great Omar Hakim, drums player with Weather Report, Sting, Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, Madonna, David Bowie (these are only few of the many big musicians he played with) and the Rachel Z, talented jazz pianist who collected collaborations with big names such as Wayne Shorter, Steps Ahead and Peter Gabriel, after the italian tour of their band “The Trio of OZ” came and met us at our headquarter (Osimo - Italy).

Angelo Tordini (CEO, Reference Laboratory) met them at the NAMM Show 2010 (top right photo), where they had the chance for the first time to appreciate the quality of Reference Cables, so that they decided to run extensive tests on both RMC-S01 (mic cable for studio applications) and RIC-01A at their home-studio in New York.

Ever since they have been in touch with us and then this summer… the good news: Omar and Rachel would come near here for a gig with their band (“The Trio of OZ”), and a masterclass on drums… just a few km from Osimo. Some sms and we arranged an appointment: we would meet at the Reference Labs headquarter, on August 10. As we might expect, the meeting was marked by cordiality, genuine goodwill and great warmth… Very exciting!

Here below some pics of that occurrence and the artists’ precious quotes…
