Mohammed Abozekry: Chaos (Neonovo, 2013).
Abozekry is a French-Egyptian out player and he shreds. I’m a little prejudiced against the shredders but I like the vibe of this record. On this record he plays with three other musicians — a guitar player, an upright bass player and a percussionist. I like that instrumentation and the guitar/oud combo is cool. I’m also quite a sucker for those tight sounding Middle Eastern hand drums.
