Master of the Oud

SteveFord

This is the ECM debut album of Tunisian oud master, Anouar Brahem, joined by violinist Bechir Selmi and/or percussionist Lassad Hosni on a number of tracks. Everything by Brahem is worth the effort, and this is a good place to start.

They Say All Music Guide

This starkly beautiful collection of 13 tracks by Tunisian composer Anouar Brahem is his debut release for the ECM label. The album spotlights Brahem’s solo oud pieces, which range from the meditative (“Sadir”) to the propulsive (“Ronda”). This solo work is nicely augmented by stellar contributions from violinist Bechir Selmi and percussionist Lassad Hosni; Selmi is featured on the transcendent “Barzakh,” while Hosni figures prominently on “Souga” and “Bou Naouara.” The three musicians come together for the joyous dance number “Parfum de Gitane.” Throughout Barzakh, Brahem and the others forge an appealing mix of Middle Eastern sonorities and jazz phrasing, an intimate sound perfectly suited to the clean and spacious ECM recording style. This is a great title for fans of both international music and jazz. – Stephen Cook
