Album Notes
M'oudswing's goal is for Arabic music and jazz to co-exist in harmony while still retaining their respective musical origins. The brainchild of a Morrocan oudist and an American keyboardist, M'oudswing aims to introduce jazz to a Middle Eastern/North African audience, doing the reverse for the western audiophile, and perhaps creating a new breed of listener.

This "Moroccan fusion" layers oud and modal jazz improvisation over North African grooves. These two world sounds run simultaneously, with doumbek and oud playing in Arabic tradition while piano, bass, woodwinds, and drums are playing jazz. The response has been very positive from audiences that are cheerfully perplexed by this new idea.

M'oudswing was conceived after a chance meeting between oud player Karim Kadiri and keyboardist, producer Barry Sames in early 2003. The two quickly agreed on the unique collaboration and M'oudswing was born. Karim and Sames enlisted Saxophonist Anibal Rojas, Syrian/Venezuelan percussionist Hafez, Bassist Chico Huff, and jazz drummer Najib.
