Ahmed Warshanna: Ishta

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.

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
