Smadj Presents S.O.S. Smadj, Orhan Osman, Savas Zurnaci

Smadj’s roots cross many continents; African Tunisian through his forefathers and French through his childhood, he masters both the oud and computer sound engineering programs. Joining him on this special project is German born, Greek bred, Turkish Orhan Osman with his faithful companion, the Bouzouki, and clarinetist Savas Zurnaci who channels the heavens above with each note he plays. Together these virtuosos discover the mellifluous rhythms and grooves they produce with their spontaneous jamming. Musicians with a flair for the unexpected, a new sound is added into the mix—the electronic fasil—thrusting the musicians into the throes of ecstasy, transporting us to the elusive state of happiness through their art.

Poets and musicians seek happiness to share with their peers. Happiness, that transient state, to tear bits of eternity out of life. The musician, if he’s being honest; is both a poet and a traveler. Man-made laws can’t change anything—poetry knows no boundaries. Turkish music is sought after or shunned by three continents, and it never ceases to accommodate other influences. Yet it never stops being itself. This is what attracts poets to Istanbul; the assurance that they will hear plenty and the promise they’ll sing a tune or two. Like Turkey, Smadj’s roots cross many continents; African Tunisian through his forefathers and French European through his childhood. Smadj forged his education by exploring the musical resources of these two poles. Delving into the rich musical traditions of the Orient by learning to play the Oud, and exploring the modern technological advancements of the West by mastering computer sound engineering programs. Drawn to Istanbul, Smadj soon found two kindred spirits with whom he could make music. German born, Greek bred, Turkish Orhan Osman with his faithful companion, the Bouzouki, and clarinetist Savas Zurnaci who channels the heavens above with each note he plays as he wanders around the world in the footsteps of his gypsy ancestors. Smadj brings these virtuosos together, discovering with their spontaneous jamming the mellifluous rhythms and grooves they produce because of their innate understanding of one another.

The encounter proves to be exceptional, especially because of rich tones provided by talented peers. Together, they invite us to dream, invite us to dance. Musicians with a flair for the unexpected, a new sound is added into the mix—the electronic fasil—thrusting the musicians into the throes of ecstasy, transporting us to the elusive state of happiness through their art. Reminding us that we must never forget that poets are always right.

Musicians:
Smadj:
electronic rythms, electric and acoustic oud
Orhan Osman: bouzuki, “cura”, banjo

Munir Bashir - Omar Bashir - 1998 - Duo De Ud

Munir Bashir was one of the most famous musicians in the Middle East during the 20th century and was considered to be the supreme master of the Arab maqamat scale system. He created different styles of the Arabian short scaled lute, the oud. He was one of the first middle eastern instrumentalists known to Europe and America. Bashir’s music is distinguished by a novel style of improvisation that reflects his study of Indian and European tonal art in addition to oriental forms. Munir Although he was an ethnic Assyrian Bashir played a big role in Arab culture throughout the 20th century. Born in Iraq, he had to deal with numerous disruptions of violent coup attempts and multiple wars that the country went through. He would eventually exile to Europe and become noticeable first in eastern nations such as Hungary and Bulgaria.

Omar Bashir: An incredible talent, raised in a family of artists – his grandfather Bachri Abdel Aziz, his father Mounir Bashir and his uncle Jamil were musicians – he began his musical training when he was five years old, when his father gave him his first violin. When he was seven years old, he already frequented the Conservatory of Bagdad and when he was nine he gave his first solo concert. Moving to Hungary in 1991, the homeland of his mother, he studied piano, singing and direction of choir at the Liszt University. Since 1990 Omar Bashir has been playing the oud as a professional. Apart from solo tours he has realized a lot of concerts with his father Mounir, who’s great virtuosity represented a constant stimulus for the young artist.

Track List:
1 –  Fôg el-Nakhel (Above the Palm Trees) (12:43) فوق النخل
2 –  Pastâ Baghdadiyya [Popular Iraqi Tune] (08:06) بسطة بغدادية
3 –  Hanân (Tenderness) (12:43) حنان

Dhafer Youssef & Wolfgang Muthspiel - 2007 - GLOW

Although it’s a dual-leader album, in which oud player Dhafer Youssef‘s performance is at least as important as that of guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, one of Glow’s chief causes for celebration is Muthspiel’s on-form presence. After releasing the shimmeringly beautiful Bright Side (Material Records, 2006)—a little-known masterpiece which may yet take its place alongside such jazz guitar iconographs as Johnny Smith’s Moonlight In Vermont (Roulette, 1953, reissued 2004) and Wes Montgomery’s Incredible Jazz Guitar (Riverside, 1960)—Muthspiel’s project with drummer Brian Blade, Friendly Travelers (Material Records, 2007), was a disappointment, interesting in conception but not entirely convincing in execution.

Glow finds Muthspiel back in immaculate form as both guitarist and producer (significantly, the Blade album was a co-production while the Youssef is solely produced by Muthspiel). The disc reunites the Tunisian oud player and Austrian guitarist after a gap of six years following Muthspiel’s playing and composing collaboration on Youssef’s Electric Sufi (Enja, 2001). The album, Youssef’s breakthrough, was a thrilling, perfectly realized collision of traditional Maghrebi music, European jazz and a lively slab of dirty, visceral rock.

Wolfgang Muthspiel Dhafer Youssef ظافر يوسف

Glow inhabits similar territory, but with a broader, and perhaps deeper, emotional range. In large part this is down to Youssef’s singing, which Muthspiel, as producer, has coaxed to new expressive peaks. At times Youssef’s voice achieves the ecstatic intensity of the late Pakistani qawwali master Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, at others it suggests the winsome vulnerability of the late electric troubadour Jeff Buckley. He sounds by turns beatific and scary, caressing and chilling, alternating lustrous tenor passages with tortured, almost weeping, falsetto. It’s an extraordinary performance.

Extraordinary, too, is the instrumental content and, again, comparisons with Electric Sufi are pertinent. The earlier album was recorded by a nine-piece, the new one by a quintet. The smaller line-up retains a trumpeter, with Tom Harrell replacing Markus Stockhausen, but makes more of the interaction between Youssef and Muthspiel. Both have an exquisite gift for melody, and an understanding of the power of silence, and both place every note with precision. It’s a commonplace to say such and such a musician “makes every note count,” but Muthspiel, in particular, really does.

Glow uses electronic wizardry with a lighter touch than its predecessor, though textural post-production continues to be a feature of Muthspiel’s work. Alegre Correa replaces drummers Mino Cinelu and Will Calhoun, and works in intimate partnership with the young bassist Matthias Pichler (who debuted so brilliantly on Bright Side).

Some music has the ability to condense time, a smaller proportion stretches it. Glow, its every bar a micro-world of eventful creation, is amongst the latter.
