Madar This is a trio to be noticed by all means... Anouar Brahem, Tunesian ud virtuoso player and composer who is widely regarded as an innovator in his field "OUD" ~ Shaukat Hussain ( Indian tabla master ) ~ Jan Garbarek, Norwegian ( Saxophonist ) On various occasions they prove to be worldmusicians, working with long melodylines, using their skills to let their instruments do what ever enjoyable can be, by telling intelligent stories about building bridges, creating new cultures by using the best of their (old) cultures. All the pieces they play are fine examples of excellent listening and anticipating on what can and will be played, ever relaxed even in the more emotional moments, as subtle as can be, with compassion. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ( If you guys enjoyed my previous post on "Anouar Brahem". Then you are in for a HUGE TREAT. The 1st track alone on this release is just about 17 mins and like mentioned amazing tabla and Saxophone. SUPERB ). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Artist - Jan Gabarek Brahem Hussain Album - Madar Release Date - 1994 Genre - Experimental, Jazz, Saxo, Tabla Tracklist 01. Sull Lull 02. Madar 03. Sebika 04. Bahia 05.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
