Ottawa-raised, Halifax-based saxophonist Kenji Omae has been described as “a super-articulate virtuoso” (Peter Hum-The Ottawa Citizen). He “may be the most exciting tenor saxophonist to emerge in Canada in recent years,”  wrote Stuart Broomer in The WholeNote. Kenji is now an assistant professor of music at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, N.S. he has released three albums of original music as a leader: Story Time (2015); Not So Deep (2011); and Here For Now (2007). Story Time was one of CBC’s top 10 jazz albums of 2015. Kenji is also featured as a sideman on over 30 jazz CDs. From 2003 to 2017, he was based in Seoul, South Korea, and in 2007 he won the first prize in the Jarasum International Jazz Festival competition in Seoul.
