Editorial Reviews

Asked by the French national film library to compose music for a film of his choosing from among the silent movies in the Albatros catalogue, jazz trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf chose Rene Clair's 1927 film La Proie du vent (The Prey of the Wind). The project allowed Maalouf to fulfill two wishes - first to compose for a film, and second to compose a piece that could be very much inspired by Miles Davis's music for Louis Malle's Ascenseur pour l'echafaud, but using a quarter-tone trumpet. Maalouf says of the album's theme, ''I wanted to reproduce that mysteriously melancholic atmosphere, dripping with suspense, contributing a discreet yet powerful Arabic hue, blended into the typical jazz quintet played for many years by Miles.''

5.0 out of 5 stars Best jazz album I've heard in a long, long time March 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Commissioned as the soundtrack to the 1927 French silent movie "La Proie du Vent (The Prey in the Wind)" and inspired by Miles Davis's music for Louis Malle's "Ascenseur Pour l'Echafaud (Elevator to the Gallows)," Ibrahim Maalouf and his accompanists (Frank Woeste, piano; Mark Turner, sax; Larry Grenadier, bass; and Clarence Penn, drums) have created an album of haunting beauty, befitting the album's title. The playing is extraordinary--each member of the ensemble shines, and collectively, they're clearly listening so closely to each other here, it's as if they're in each other's heads. By turns exciting and invigorating or breathy and melancholy, "Wind" serves as an object lesson in how jazz can expand and grow in the 21st century while paying respectful homage to the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Constant Rotation April 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am not joking when I say I listen to this album EVERY day.
Keep in mind I'm not a Jazz guy by any means. This album is just amazing, the music is smooth, with the right amount of flare. The musicians are truly artists, each song paints its own picture & that's how its supposed to be.

I actually bought the CD, ripped it, and have it also on my phone, mp3 player, & tablet. That way I can listen to it at ANY time of the day, and yes you WILL want to listen to it at random times of your day.

Its a beautiful peace of work & I would recommended it to anyone who simply loves well though out music.
I hope you buy it and enjoy it as much as I am :)
