Here's what people are saying about the music:
"One of the best new Arabic Jazz CD's I have heard in 10 years"
—Ray Rashid, Rashid Music (America's largest distributor of Arabic music since 1934)
"A vibrant fusion of Arabic music and jazz, Nashaz is at times mysterious, at times racing, always fresh and adventurous. Highly recommended."
—Midwest Book Review (midwestbookreview.com)
"Sounds unlike anything else. . . as listenable as it is engaging. Strong melodies that are both memorable and easy to hum along to . . . will leave the listener wanting more. Highly Recommended."
—Dave Sumner, Bird Is the Worm blog (birdistheworm.com)
"Wild, engaging stuff that simply clicks . . . a must"
"Nashaz has taken up the gauntlet and run with it. Lyrical and poetic . . . there is an authenticity of this music that can only come with an intimate experience of tradition and culture. An impressive accomplishment."
—Dawoud Kringle, DooBeeDooBeeDoo Online Magazine (doobeedoobeedoo.info)
"The music is fascinating . . . excellent throughout."
—Rick Anderson, CD Hotlist (cdhotlist.com)
