...Come With Me To The Casbah'. Two complete late '50s albums sitting at the meeting point of eastern and western cultures, instruments and styles. Mantra like modal music created with ouds and other exotic instrumentation sparring with jazz legends including Benny Golson, Lee Morgan and Johnny Griffin. Featuring Ahmed Abdul-Malik's super rare 'East Meets West', an evocative tapestry of structured raga-styled music set off against some classic jazz horn breaks. Also featuring the rare debut album from Charles 'Chick' Ganimian, a hybrid of Armenian and American cultures that touched on rock 'n' roll with the single 'Daddy Lolo' as Ganim And The Asia Minors which was a minor US radio hit. Vintage buried treasures from two unsung heroes of jazz who, between them, have played with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, John Coltrane, Zoot Sims, Thelonius Monk and flautist Herbie Mann among others. An intriguing set of sounds that should appeal to lovers of space age pop and exotica as well as jazz enthusiasts and fans of Yusef Lateef, Paul Horn, Alice Coltrane and Terry Riley.
