Product Description:
After the rise of Islam in the 7th century, classical Arab music developed in cities and later in the Muslim (Moorish) Andalusian courts of Seville, Granada, and Cordoba. From the 13th century onward, the Christian reconquista of Spain drove the Muslims to North Africa, where these local styles took root. In his liner notes, ethnomusicologist Wolfgang Laade explains that the goal of the Seville-influenced Tunis music presented here is the exact reproduction of traditional repertoire. Liner notes include a description of Arab-Andalusian music history, forms, and instruments.

Product Description:
Ten years in the making, The Music of Islam series recorded in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Yemen, Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran and Qatar represents the most comprehensive sound documentation available to Westerners today, of a world religion dating back to 1/622. Although governed by strict rules for fourteen centuries, contact with other cultures has radically affected Islamic music throughout history. As the world enters the XV/21st century the timing of this collection serves an even larger purpose, documenting the traditions that have survived and will continue to survive for centuries to come. Today, one fifth of the world's population, one billion people, are Muslims, occupying a large territory stretching from the Atlantic shore of north and west Africa, through west, central, and south Asia to island southeast Asia, and attracting an increasing following in India, western Europe, north America, east Asia, and southern Africa. This is a global presence which cannot be ignored.

According to producer David Parsons this volume was the most difficult in the series, both technically and information-wise. "It was a classic case of trying to record, with one stereo microphone, a group of singers who also played drums", exclaims Parsons. Yet, however technically challenging it may have been, the end result is nonetheless superb. Two of the most beautiful songs (tracks 2 and 7) on the recording feature the mawwal - a vocal form which usually follows the performance of the layali - vocal improvisations. The form was known as early as the III/9th century where it was described in connection with the working class. Also featured is a modern composition (a rarity in this series) by group leader and vocalist, Lotfi Jormana. As in traditional music, the melodic component of this song is shaped by the concept of maqam - or mode - which governs the construction of melodic phrases, standard melodic formulae, cadential patterns, and vocal range.

Although governed by strict rules for fourteen centuries, contact with other cultures has radically affected Islamic music throughout history. As the world enters the XV/21st century the timing of this collection serves an even larger purpose, documenting the traditions that have survived and will continue to survive for centuries to come. Today, one fifth of the world's population, one billion people, are Muslims, occupying a large territory stretching from the Atlantic shore of north and west Africa, through west, central, and south Asia to island southeast Asia, and attracting an increasing following in India, western Europe, north America, east Asia, and southern Africa. This is a global presence which cannot be ignored.

From ancient times, Nubian peoples have flourished in the land along the Nile River. But Egyptian projects to dam the river at Aswan have, over time, submerged the Nubian territories along the Nile under water. And with the completion of the Aswan High Dam and Lake Nasser came the inundation of the entire Nubian valley in southern Egypt. As a result, the Egyptian Nubians irrevocably lost what remained of their ancestral lands along the Nile and were forcibly relocated. The resettlement has given rise to a range of social problems, and many aspects of Nubian culture and social organization that previously existed have now changed or disappeared.

Despite efforts to survive or revive their culture, at this present point in the epic history of the Nubians, when their ancestral land is lost, and when their language is no longer the medium of either their religion or their government, music may in fact prove to be the best means for preserving something of the ethos of Nubian culture, and for adapting it to further changes in the future.

Product Description:
Gillespie always liked his bebop tailored to a large aggregation and burst onto the scene with his startling Big Band in 1945 - the first of many Diz would put together over the years. This 1956 recording live from Birdland in New York City features one of the finest units that Gillespie ever led. Blessed with a good team of arrangers, himself included, he set collective standards that not all such bands could match. The disc abounds with great charts and superb section and solo work with impressive readings of Gillespie classics such as Groovin' High, Tin Tin Deo, Night in Tunisia, Cool Breeze and the rest.
