Ibrahim Maalouf's Red & Black Light, released digitally on Impulse!/ Verve Label Group follows Maalouf's album Kalthoum, an hour-long suite inspired by legendary Egyptian singer Oum Kalthoum's Thousand And One Nights. Ibrahim Maalouf is known for bridging the gap between Arabic music and western jazz – a feat helped by his unusual four-valve trumpet, invented by his father, that digs into the in-between notes. The Atlantic said of his performance earlier this year at Winter Jazz Fest, "Attempts at translating world music into jazz are common, but successful translations are far rarer. Maalouf managed the trick. He took full advantage of Eastern scales, hammering them into superb modal jazz."
