PERFORMER: Rabih Abou-Khalil
CATALOGUE NO: DV-JTJCH
The three TDKs disappoint with their minimal booklet notes and some sloppy editing. Why are three songs in THE JAZZ CLUB HIGHLIGHTS 1990 nameless? And why do the credits start rolling after track 7 when there are four more still to go? Musically, at least, the disc is strong, with Lebanese oud master Rabih Abou-Khalil, playful thrashings from John Zorn’s Naked City boys and an affecting ballad from Charlie Mariano.
