Toufic Farroukh Ali On Broadway – The Other Mix. Le Chant Du Monde

Lebanese saxophonist and composer Toufic Farroukh has re-visited his France only first album from 1993 and added a little mixed a bit more before re-mastering the whole to produce a fine contemporary CD of middle-eastern jazz. Toufic studied music at the Conservatoire National de Musique in Paris and collaborates regularly as a composer with the department of modern dance at the Paris Conservatory, that training and environment gives his music a more expressive feel with jazz giving added freedom. Well worth checking out.
