Strange Days (2LP)
Release Date: 11/10/2019
Catalogue No.: WR4744LP
Record Label: Whirlwind
Format: 12" Vinyl

There's something extraordinary happening when musical cultures and genres merge to create new atmospheres, as displayed by the fascinating Anglo-Egyptian partnership of vocalist Natacha Atlas and violinist, composer/arranger and producer Samy Bishai. A broad personnel is wholly attuned to their concept - at its core, pianist Alcyona Mick, bassist Andy Hamill, drummers Laurie Lowe and Asaf Sirkis, trumpeter Hayden Powell and trombonist Robinson Khoury. Alongside the strings and Oli Savill's percussion that are central to this unique, balanced fusion of jazz and Arabic music come guest appearances from reedsman Idris Rahman, guitarist Paulo Vinícius and vocalists Joss Stone, Tanya Wells and Sofiane Saidi.Metaphorical, dystopian themes abound as the swirling jazz mystery of "Out of Time" unveils Atlas's vocal fluency and inflection, while spirited "Maktoub" ('that which is written') bounces with infectious hip-hop and Tsifteteli rhythms, portamento strings and choral unison.
