Ibrahim Maalouf isn’t one of those musicians where if you’ve heard one of their songs, you’ve heard them all. Apparently being the world’s best quarter tone trumpet player wasn’t enough for him, because he is a master composer, arranger, producer and cultural diplomat in addition to being highly versatile as an instrumentalist.

Quand Ibrahim Maalouf publie simultanément deux albums via son label Mi'ster Productions, il ne faut pas seulement y voir une surabondance de créativité mais, en filigrane, une idée qui relie Red & Black Light et Kalthoum. Le trompettiste couronné par une Victoire de la musique pour Illusions (2013), après deux Victoires du jazz, projette un hommage à la féminité faite musique à travers deux options personnelles et différentes : la première, évoquée ici, sous la forme de compositions modernes et complexes, et la seconde pour une symphonie improvisée en homage à Oum Kalsoum.

Ibrahim Maalouf, born in Beirut and now residing in Paris, is a virtuoso of the quarter-tone trumpet, which enables him to work with the maqam, or system of melodic modes, in traditional Arabic music. He and his carefully selected powerhouse band pay tribute to one of the greatest Arabic divas of all time, Oum Kalthoum.

Paris-based trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf's moody mix of jazz, groove and Lebanese traditional music comes across rather like a cut-up novel by William Burroughs or a collection of short stories by Paul Bowles, or at least a shot in that direction. Diasporas was Maalouf's debut album, and was originally released on his own Mi'ster Productions label in 2007. It's been followed by Diachronism (Mi'ster, 2009), which inhabits similar territory but spread over two discs. Diasporas, pithier and more rigorous, is the more enjoyable of the two albums and its release into the wider European marketplace is a welcome development.
