أحمد [Ahmed]

Pat Thomas (piano), Seymour Wright (alto saxophone), Antonin Gerbal (drums), Joel Grip (double bass). Excavating and re-inhabiting the notes and visions of NYC theorist, educator, composer and musician Ahmed Abdul-Malik (1927-1993), the quartet creates music of heavy rhythm, repetition and syncopation set deep in an understanding of jazz and the obscure depths of its history.
