Anouar Brahem - Conte de L'incroyable amour (1992)

Format: flac + cue + log
Genre: Jazz, Folk, World, & Country
Original Release Date: 1992
Label: ECM Records

After a memorable ECM debut with Barzakh, Anouar Brahem recorded this even more memorable sophomore effort one year later. Carrying over percussionist Lassad Hosni, Brahem welcomes Turkish musicians Kudsi Erguner on ney and Barbaros Erköse on clarinet. Erköse, a gypsy music specialist, adds rich colors to an already dense palette, weaving tethers that pull us into tender worlds.

The title track brings the patter of clay drums, weaving a gorgeous ney into our vision.....
