From

Listen to new music with trumpet on this New Sounds, including music from the Paris-based Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf, Iraqi-American trumpeter Amir Elsaffar, Ben Neill & his mutantrumpet, and music from trumpeter, bandleader, composer Dave Douglas.

Hear more music from Lebanese-born, Paris-based trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf off of a brilliant new record that is an homage to the great Arab diva Oum Kalthoum; listen to another from a suite of pieces built around her song, Alf Leila Wa Leila (The thousand and one nights.) Then, listen to “Silo,” an upbeat instrumental call and response track from Senegalese singer/kora player Ablaye Cissoko and German-born trumpeter Volker Goetze. From the Motema label site’s interview, Cissoko says “Silo” translates as “straight path.” 

Then, the avant-garde and EDM come together in music by Ben Neill & his mutantrumpet, from his record “Horizonal.” Also, hear trumpeter, bandleader, composer Dave Douglas  together with Michigan-based laptop artist, Shigeto – from the quartet record, “High Risk.”

There’s also music from New York-based Iraqi-American trumpeter Amir Elsaffar and his Two Rivers project.  The title refers to the Tigris and Euphrates in Iraq and celebrates the two streams of influence in Elsaffar's work, the near-eastern classical and the western jazz. That, and much more.
