INNER RHYME - LAYALE CHAKER & SARAFAND

OUT NOW ON A CIRCLE RECORDS | official release date : january 18th, 2019

"Inner Rhyme deftly fuses multiple idioms into an indissoluble whole. Certainly the Arabic melodies exemplify the Eastern dimension, whereas the presence of acoustic piano adds a Western character, and the rhythms swing in ways that suggest a wedding of both. That Chaker dedicated many an hour listening to voice material is evidenced by the powerful vocal-like quality of the playing, [...]  both serpentine and conversational. More than anything else, it's the counterpoint so marvelously exemplified by the playing that makes the performances on Chaker's debut so compelling.
