CD Reviews

Great album, big mistake...
jcbalblanc | TOULOUSE France | 07/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The mistake is this record has nothing to do with Cheikh Raymond.
The artists, ALLA (one of the best Oud player) and Youval MICENMACHER (great and sensitive percussionist), deliver a very sharp and efficient example of a rare north african type of music. It can be listen as a "relaxing" music - try it with a good cognac around midnight - or as a sincere "étude" of one of the origin of arabo-andalous music."
Red herring

"This is a colloboration between turkish and flamenco artists and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with andaluse music or Chiekh Raymond. The artists involved are fine performers, and overall the album is an unusually successful fusion. It is disturbing that the liner notes seem to indicate that the Erguners, who are great masters of turkish music, are utterly ignorant of the fact that there is a living Andaluse-music tradition throughout North-Africa...I repeat, although this is a sometimes-charming fusion, it is not in any way Andaluse Music."
