ARTIST ... Origin
Title  Duration
(Album) [Label]

Rabih ABOU-KHALIL .... Lebanon / Germany
Nocturne au Villaret 6'32
(The Sultan's Picnic) [ENJA]
If you are familiar with some this man's stunning previous work, you may be very disappointed by this disc. Harmonica and tuba are not my idea of a suitable compliment to the oud and double-bass, with the fundamental frequencies of the tuba in particular competing too heavily. These compositions lack new inspiration too. His more tradional style previous release is listed below.

Hamza El DIN .... The Sudan (Nubia)
Nabra 6'33
(Music of Nubia) [Vanguard]
A 1964 recording of just voice and oud, and he is still a fine performer.

(The Merdoum Kings Play Songs of Love) [World Circuit]

Mahmoud AHMED .... Ethiopia

A more traditional style disc, but if the jazz influence takes your fancy, listen to "Blue Camel" and "Al-Jadida". You won't be disappointed.
