Zoe & Idris Rahman: Where Rivers Meet (CD: Manushi) Zoe & Idris Rahman: Where Rivers Meet (CD: Manushi)
Following her 2007 Mercury Award-nominated album “Melting Pot”, pianist ZoeRahman releases her new album, “Where Rivers Meet” - a collaboration with herbrother, Idris Rahman (clarinet, flute, & bass clarinet) - showcasing a unique, jazzinspired take on their Bengali heritage. Zoe’s regular trio members, drummer Gene Calderazzo and bassist Oli Hayhurst, are augmented by violinist Samy Bishai, percussionist Kuljit Bhamra - plus Dhakabased vocal star Arnob, and three additional vocalists.

There are hauntingly beautiful interpretations of the music of Rabindranath Tagore, Gauri Majumdar & Hemanta Mukherjee, Pranab Roy & Kamal Dasgupta, Hemant Kumar, and Jasim Uddin, among others - with all arrangements by the two Rahman leaders.

This is a rich, vibrant album of Anglo-Asian music, where jazz meets world music, with dazzling soloing and interplay from all concerned, but especially Zoe and Idris (who also leads his own Soothsayers band). The album comes in a delightfully designed gatefold digipack sleeve, with excellent 12-page booklet. (Discovery Records)
