Jazz trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf's acclaimed Wind is now available as a 180 gram vinyl LP. When asked by the French national film library to compose music for one of the silent movies in the Albatros catalogue, Maalouf chose Rene Clair's 1927 film La Proie du vent (The Prey of the Wind). The project allowed Maalouf to compose a piece that could be very much inspired by Miles Davis's music for Louis Malle's Ascenseur pour l'echafaud, but using a quarter-tone trumpet. Maalouf says of the album's theme, "I wanted to reproduce that mysteriously melancholic atmosphere, dripping with suspense, contributing a discreet yet powerful Arabic hue, blended into the typical jazz quintet played for many years by Miles."
