Today’s offering is a study, a beautiful and subtle demonstration of containment and focus of groove and dynamics. No one over played, space was just as much a member of this trio and everything percolated in a satisfying way. I love how Abdullah Ibrahim’s left hand and the bass link up together in spaces and how the kick and snare hit you in your heart. Barakaat is a musical meditation.
You can catch the Abdullah Ibrahim Mukashi Trio at the Vancouver International Jazz Fest this year on Sunday, June 28th at The Vogue!
