Album Notes
Stephan Athanas ContempArabic Jazz Ensemble
Welcome to Egypt

This album is a live documentation of the Tour the Ensemble did just after its foundation in Cairo Egypt. The music is instrumental and reflects the work Stephan Athanas did during his stay in Cairo Egypt, where he performed a lot with the musicians of Fathy Salama.

CD Baby

For a fresh take on jazz fusion and its boundaries (or lack thereof) Stephan Athanas ContempArabic Jazz Ensemble's album, Welcome to Egypt, does a superb job of putting modern jazz and traditional Egyptian music in relationship. At times, the two traditions are one with each other and at other times, they converse in almost a call and response form, taking their turn to speak and react. Whether they are heard as fitting together or as juxtaposed, the striking differences in color, tuning and harmonic vocabulary are exciting and inspiring. Later breaking into moments of more experimental and avant garde approaches, only to bring the two worlds together as if they are laughing at the listener's vulnerability, the wide range of togetherness and separateness keeps the audience in suspense. All in all, this is an incredibly creative, innovative and commendable album.
