Anouar Brahem - oud
Barbaros Erkose - clarinet
Lassad Hosni - percutie

The ECM label is usually linked with a pre-world music generation of musicians who absorbed international influences into a basically Western style. Here, though, is one of its select few stars from further afield, the oud player Anouar Brahem, in a haunting album of quiet, concentrated and poetic duos and trios with the Turkish clarinettist Barbaros Erköse and percussionist Lassad Hosni. The café of the title is symbolic of both transience and rootedness. Pace, rhythm and colour emerge from these simple resources, lightly poised and often catchy, though there are some heady improvisations and an arresting start as Erköse phrases his unaccompanied line with the sensitivity of a hushed voice.

Tunisian oud virtuoso Anouar Brahem counts as one of ECM's most important 'discoveries' of the last decade. After his highly successful trans-cultural recording 'Thimar', he returns to a more purely Middle Eastern music on 'Astrakan Café', with the trio that has been his first priority for several years. The improvisational exchanges between Brahem, clarinettist Barbaros Erköse and percussionist Lassad Hosni are exceptionally fluid, and the atmospheres that they create by turns mysterious, hypnotic, dramatic...

It’s a fearsomely powerful album, unremitting in terms of its virtuosity and almost puritanical intensity of sound. All through their meanderings these three musicians rely solely on their instruments to recreate the required mood and sense of place. There are no vocals, samples or guest musicians to disturb their meditative focus. The music delineates the mournful beauty of a desert landscape from a myriad different angles. Brahem takes the torch from the late, great oud master Munir Bachir and makes sure that it continues to burn brightly and vividly.
Andy Morgan, Songlines

An exemplary instrumentalist, the 44-year-old Tunesian oudist leads an improvising trio through a dozen sublimely wrought original compositions and two adaptations of classic themes on his sixth recording for ECM. Throughout the disc, Brahem’s sound is striking in its immediacy and lack of pretense, despite its exoticism. ... Brahem’s fingers are steady, sure, and sensitive, plucking his 12 strings delicately over the hardwood soundbox of his fretless instrument. Dark melodies bead up, entwine with Turkish clarinettist Barbaros Erköses’s throaty, mid- and low-register beckonings, and are carried along or accented by Lassad Hosni’s nimble hand-drumming. The separate parts and ensemble wholes are impassioned yet elegant, melancholy almost to desolation, rarely flashing joy. This is music of discipline and deliberation as well as inspiration. It might find verbal equivalence in a lyric poem, a persuasive metaphysical argument, or a simple, sensual sigh.
Howard Mandel, Jazziz

The virtuoso Tunisian oud player Anouar Brahem has recorded with figures from a jazz background on previous ECM albums, including Jan Garbarek, John Surman and Dave Holland, but his latest disc features his own regular trio, with Turkish clarinettist Barbaros Erköse and percussionist Lassad Hosni. Their evocative music may have nothing directly to do with western jazz, but it is continuously fascinating. The compositions (mostly written by Brahem) are all original with the band rather than traditional, but the music draws on forms and idioms from various parts of the Arabic world, including Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Turkhestan, and Azarbeidjan, all played in highly expressive and virtuoso fashion. The interplay between the oud, Erköses’s keening clarinet, and Hosni’s dynamic hand percussion on bendir and darbouka, combines a tight sense of structure with an exhilarating feel of improvisational freedom, while the combination of instrumental timbre and colour creates a kaleidoscope of striking textural patterns.
Kenny Mathieson, Jazzwise

Anouar Brahem’s oud playing is expressive, entrancing and beautyful. It’s so moving and anthemic it’s hard to believe any listener wouldn’t be frequently overwhelmed by Brahem’s brilliance. While one can debate whether Brahem’s music should be considered jazz or world or some hybrid of the two, there’s no denying the songs on Astrakan Café rank among the most lyrical and elegant in any genre. Brahem blends elements of traditional Arab and Islamic religious and popular music with just a slight nod to the American improvising tradition. ... Barbaros Erköse, on clarinet, and Lassad Hosni, on percussive instruments bendir and darbouka, prove equally exciting players.
