Reissue of this album with oud/viola virtuoso Simon Shaheen's interpretations of pieces by one of the Middle East's most important 20th century composers, Mohamed Abdel Wahab. Produced by Bill Laswell, remastered for vinyl at D&M Berlin. 'The Music
Of Mohamed Abdel Wahab' was originally released in 1990 on Axiom, the record label curated by iconic producer and bass player Bill Laswell. "Shaheen's violin soars over a slicing string section and a bed of percolating percussion, while
accordion, oud, finger cymbals and a chorus of singers weave in and out. Produced with sparkling clarity by Bill Laswell ... this record opens a new world of harmonic and melodic possibilities to ears accustomed to Western pop." ~Greg Kot/Chicago Tribune.
