1993 CD reissue.
Decades before the advent of “World Music,” the bassist-composer Ahmed Abdul-Malik (b. 1927) was playing a jazz-inflected version. Best known in jazz circles for his solid work with Randy Weston and Thelonious Monk, Abdul-Malik, who is of Sudanese descent, used traditional Middle Eastern instruments (like the oud, on which he sometimes performs here) and melded indigenous scalar and rhythmic patterns.
