If you’re searching for a multi-talented musician who never stops, look no further than Ibrahim Maalouf. In September 2018, he released the challenging Levantine Symphony No.1, and just two months later he released a recording of his live performance at the AccorHotels Arena from late 2016. The following summer he hit the road in France, teaming up with Haïdouti Orkestar to bring us an album inspired by Balkan music. His famous quarter-tone trumpet knows no limits and he is certainly not about to put it down any time soon. Now, in the autumn of 2019, he is releasing his 14 th album in twelve years, S3NS, which ventures into Afro-Cuban territory. At the beginning of S3NS, Harold Lopez-Nussa’s piano is followed by a handful of soft chords, setting the theme with Una Rosa Blanca, which, as it unfolds, gives both instruments the freedom to enjoy a lively back and forth to a caliente rhythm. The next track, Happy Face, is by Argentine composer Lalo Schifrin and could easily fit into the soundtrack for an action film (Bullitt, Mission Impossible, Starsky & Hutch). The title track itself is fairly typical of Lebanese romanticism and lyricism, ranging from moments of saudade to moments of pure joy.
We’re then transported to Cuba for Harlem where Chucho Valdès’s protégé, Irving Calao, takes his place behind the piano for some heart-felt Latin-jazz. The pianist then hands over to violinist Yilian Canizares for the very joyful Na Na Na, followed by newcomer pianist from Havana, Alfredo Rodriguez, who makes his mark on N.E.G.U. Next, Gebrayel features not only Cuban pianist Roberto Fonseca but also Belgian pianist Eric Legnini and his fellow musicians François Delporte on guitar and Stéphane Galland on drums. After this Latino infusion we’re then brought back to a state of calm with a suave trumpet-piano duo in All I Can’t Say, and piano and trumpet come hand in hand once again at the beginning of Radio Magallanes, which is the name of a Chilean radio station that supported Salvador Allende’s socialist policies. The song opens on a sad note before picking up halfway through with an onslaught of guitars, brass and percussion and lets the voice of the former president be heard, as he was overthrown by dictator Augusto Pinochet. With those unmistakeable accents and verve, the sound of Ibrahim Maalouf’s trumpet is truly glorious all the way through this album. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Kamasi Washington, the Sax of Angels

After his major success with a triple album, he went on to repeat this with a double one! Kamasi Washington charms and intrigues well beyond the jazz sphere. Working with Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, and most importantly as the head of the West Coast Get Down collective, the charismatic saxophonist from Los Angeles brings an incredible wave of excitement to the contemporary jazz scene.
