ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Over the last three decades, tenor saxophonist/theorist Hafez Modir's Persian traditional and American Jazz heritages have sycretized into an original cross-cultural approach he terms "chromodal". Bemsha Alegria is the result of extended time Modir spent on a Fulbright in Andalucia, Spain, collaborating with both traditional and jazz flamencos, as well as travelling and playing with musicians from Morocco, India, Egypt, and Iran. The results reveal a philosophy of sound and self-realization which draw upon the cryptic in ancestral memory.

Wonderful
What a beautiful sound. The saxophone with flamenco overtones is unique and wonderful to listen to.
