 Amir ElSaffar brings his deep knowledge of Iraqui maqam to the context of jazz, creating a fresh, new, vibrant style of music.  The multi-instrumentalist (vocalist, trumpet player and dulcimer) joined me for an intimate, at home, interview.  He shares tracks from his stunning new album Crisis. His  17 piece ensemble is coming to Pioneer Works this Friday!
