Guitarist and conmposer Ahmed Warshanna creates rich moods with his team of Hart Guonjian-Pettit/tp, Dominic Ellis/ts, Daniel Sperlein/tb, Joshn Miller/p, Thomas Owens/b and Charlie Seda/dr. A mix of Middle Eastern mourning and modern tones meld on “Inty Omry” and the nimble horns swerve around he leader’s clean guitar ideas on “Samaka”. Bluesy horizons bop with Ellis’ rich tenor and dancing guitar strings for “Alf Leila” and spacious trumpet and agonizing tenor take you on a rich journey for “Intisar”. Warshanna’s guitar work has a warm cadence, creating morning dew droplets during the caravan ride of “Azra’”. A journey worth hearing.
