Sahib Shihab's Jazz Party

Because he spent so much of his career living in Europe, Sahib Shihab is primarily known for being a baritonist in the bop era. As this very interesting CD shows, he was also quite original on the alto, soprano and flute and by the early 1960's was open to the influence of the avant-garde without losing his own musical personality. Shihab, who is teamed on this live Copenhagen session with flugelhornist Allan Botchinsky, guitarist Ole Molin, drummer Alex Riel and the 17-year old bassist Niels Henning Orsted Pederson, performs "Someday My Prince Will Come," "Charade" and a lengthy version of "Billy Boy" along with five originals including the three-part "Conversations." This surprising music is well worth several listens and shows that Shihab was a much more diverse player than is usually thought.

________
One of the first European recordings from Sahib Shihab a classic set that's the start of an amazing 60s run on the continent ! Shihab here is quite different than his American dates of the 50s — bolder, and blowing with a really open, fluid sort of groove that marks a great development in his sound using baritone sax, soprano, and flute — a range of instruments that really creates a wide range of feeling in the set ! The performance is a live one, and the group is great too with Allen Botschinsky on flugelhorn, Ole Molin on guitar, Niles Henning Ørsted Pedersen on bass, and both Alex Riel and Bjarne Rostvold on drums. Rhythms are a key part of the set really free and open, setting the scene for Sahib's modal genius to come and titles include "47th Blues", "Billy Boy", and the 3-part track "Conversations". CD features 3 bonus tracks "Charade", "Not Yet", and "Someday My Prince Will Come". (HQ – Hi Quality CD pressing !)
