Info for Red & Black Light

Den in Frankreich bereits Star-Ruhm genießenden Trompeter Ibrahim Maalouf gibt's aktuell gleich zweimal: Gerade erst hat er sein Impulse-Debütalbum „Kalthoum“ veröffentlicht, jetzt folgt nur wenige Wochen später „Red & Black Light“.

Nicht nur optisch gehören beide Alben in eine Serie, auch musikalisch sollte man sie in Zusammenhang sehen und hören. Das musikalisch lyrischere Album „Kalthoum“ versteht Maalouf als Hommage an Frauen der Geschichte, auf „Red & Black Light2 zollt er jetzt den Frauen von heute Tribut. Entsprechend modern, funky, rockig und geradezu hymnisch geht es hier zu. Ein Leckerbissen für Fans von virtuosen Jazzrock- und Fusion-Sounds. Maalouf wirkte bereits auf Alben von Sting, Georges Moustaki und Vanessa Paradis mit, komponierte die Musik zu Filmen wie „Smart Ass“ und „Yves Saint Laurent2 und spielte fünf erfolgreiche Alben unter eigenem Namen ein.
