Inana by Amir ElSaffar
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Pi Recordings
Global jazz fusions tend to lack the synergy that's all over Iraqi trumpeter and composer Amir ElSaffar's Inna, which bridges Arabic musical traditions and American jazz by letting both have equal footing. There are microtones and non-metered passages alongside Western harmonies and restless drum grooves. It can be solemn or frenetic, yet somehow it all just feels right. These elegantly balanced tunes bring new possibilities to global jazz.
