Album Review

On this CD Jan Garbarek (doubling on tenor and soprano) is accompanied only by Anouar Brahem on oud and Ustad Shaukat Hussain's tabla. Garbarek shows off his distinctive tones and lyricism on a set of gradually developing group originals, two of which are based on traditional Norwegian melodies. It may take some time for listeners to get into this music and notice the fire beneath the ice but the close communication between the players is apparent from the start. Jan Garbarek has succeeded in carving out his own unique niche in improvised music and Madar (which also has individual features for Brahem and Shaukat) is a good example of how he can create a great deal out of what seems like very little.

Customer Reviews

This CD should be under Anouar Brahem's name

All the pieces in this album, except for Joron, are original compositions by Anouar Brahem. So, why is it listed under Jan Grarbarek, and most importantly, why is the review giving credit to Garbarek as he is the mind behind the idea?


Great trio recording. Do it. Listen to it.
