Welcome to the Arabic Jazz blog!

Ahlan wa sahlan!

Welcome to my blog. I've created this blog to share information and news about music that mixes elements of jazz and Arabic music. I'll also share scores and transcriptions etc. for musicians.

Rabih Abou-Khalil, part 2

A couple of other nice recordings by Abou-Khalil:

Yara (1998):
very nice recording with strings.
Originally came about as music for a film of the same title.

Dominique Pifarely (violin), Vincent Courtois (cello), Nabil Khaiat (percussion)

Journey to the Centre of an Egg (2005):
One of Abou-Khalil's most modern-sounding records. Joachim Kühn's piano playing is inventive and dynamic, and challenges Abou-Khalil to stray a little farther from Arabic sounds into jazz territory.

Joachim Kühn (piano, alto saxophone), Jarrod Cagwin (drums, percussion),
Wolfgang Reisinger (additional percussion)
