Album Review

ElSaffar, Amir – “Crisis” – [Pi Recordings]

Cousin Mary   8/27/2015   CD, Jazz

ElSaffar performs trumpet, vocals and santur (Iranian hammered dulcimer) on this intersection of Middle Eastern and jazz. It is inspired by his experience as an eye witness to events in Lebanon and the Arab Spring. Gorgeous rich tones, fine musicianship, and the use of ethnic instruments like the oud (a type of lute) and the buzuq (long-necked lute) make this approachable yet original.
