Kahil El'Zabar - Kahil El'Zabar's America The Beautiful LPSpiritmuse Records
Innovative multi-percussionist Kahil El’Zabar composes, arranges and conducts an incredible new album. It features masterful performances by the (late, great) Hamiet Bluiett, Corey Wilkes, Tomeka Reid & the James Sanders String Qt. A strong percussion section is complimented by strings and brass, in a powerful blend of spiritual groove, melody and improvisation - an inspired re-imagining of a “better” way, parallel to the central message of this album.
America the Beautiful is Kahil El’Zabar’s musical testament to the state of affairs, expressed with love, urgency, hope & spirit.
