Amir ElSaffar's new album is called Alchemy.

Amir ElSaffar

The innovative Amir ElSaffar Quintet, featuring John Escreet on piano, Francois Moutin on bass, Dan Weiss on drums, Ole Mathisen on tenor saxophone, and ElSaffar on trumpet, re-imagines the Iraqi Maqam to explore new microtonal harmonies and chord progressions, mixed with Mesopotamian modes.
