Listening to other instruments and less-familiar forms
of music is a potent way to expand one’s technique
and musical comprehension as a guitarist, and this
profoundly beautiful album by the renowned Tunisian
oud master presents a master class in both.
Drawing upon ancient and contemporary timbres, tonalities, and traditions,
Youssef’s music spans epochs as well as continents, resulting in a
unique sonic space-time continuum. His ensemble features musicians
from Turkey, Germany, the U.S., and Norway—including innovative electric
guitarist Eivind Aarset and the brilliant trumpeter Nils-Petter Molvaer—
all of whom are adept at evolving fresh forms, and infusing them
with the unmistakable taste of timelessness. Okeh.
