Description

The much-demanded reissue of oud player and composer Rabih Abou-Khalil's iconic 1992 album 'Blue Camel', featuring trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, saxophonist Charlie Mariano, bassist Steve Swallow and percussionists Ramesh Shotham and Milton Cardona.

Kurt Keefner stated "Blue Camel is the pinnacle to date of Lebanese oud player Rabih Abou-Khalil's achievement as a jazzman. In both mood and scope, it can almost be characterized as a new Kind of Blue. Both tense and reflective, it is perfect for listening after midnight ... Blue Camel may not be a perfect album, but it demonstrates better than any other that a fusion between jazz and a musical form from another culture is possible and can work to the advantage of both. Plus, it's just great listening".

Metal Reviews said: "The album glories in crafting a successful blend of Arabian music and jazz: a very homogeneous and enjoyable fusion with enough shift in mood and method to keep things interesting".
