Conte de L'incroyable Amour is Tunisian composer and oud virtuoso Anouar Brahem's follow-up to his excellent ECM debut, Barzakh. Like its predecessor, this release contains original material that mixes Arabic music and jazz improvisation and features a stellar band comprised of some of Turkey's finest musicians this time out Brahem is joined by clarinetist Barbaros Erkose, nay reed flute player Kudsi Ergune, and the percussionist from Barzakh, Lassad Hosni. In contrast to Barzakh's livelier mood, though, the sound here is more meditative and even stark at times, especially on solo flights by both Brahem "Iram Retrouvee" and Erkose "Etincelles" and by way of Erguner's ...

In contrast to Barzakh's livelier mood, though, the sound here is more meditative and even stark at times, especially on solo flights by both Brahem "Iram Retrouvee" and Erkose "Etincelles" and by way of Erguner's ethereal improvisations "Diversion". The pace picks up on the sympathetically played and joyous ensemble piece "Conte de L'incroyable Amour" and on the impassioned Brahem and Erkose duet, "Nayzak."
