CD Reviews

It's Not Quite Jazz, It's Not Quite Fusion....
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...But if you like either you'll love Turkoise. The album combines a cleanly skilled jazz guitar, a strong supporting keyboardist and the eclectic talents of drummer, bassist and percussionist. Mostly instrumental, the album works well as a background compliment to any social gathering. But the more technical listener will also appreciate the album's many subtle surprises from the rhythym section even after several hearings. The two vocal tracks (in French) are wonderfully crafted and augment the melodic twists & turns of the musicians in a relaxing combination. Turkoise contains a freshness that will surprise you even after several hearings and is must for anyone who appreciates the intricacies of jazz."
Simply the best french-egyptian artist there is

"Khalil Chahine is the man who combines romantic, classical, jazz and even opera in his songs. Just listen to his most beautiful song, Lux Aeterna."
