Product Description

John Berberian-Oud Artistry-'65 Armenian Oud Master-NEW LP 180g 

Psychedelic

180g vinyl"

Exact repro edition of this LP, originally issued in 1965

Oud virtuoso born in the United States to Armenian immigrant parents. His father was an accomplished oud player, as well as instrument maker.

John Berberian first recorded traditional oud music with violinist Reuben Sarkisian, when he was a student at Columbia University in the mid 1950s. He subsequently recorded for a variety of labels including MGM, RCA, Roulette, Verve and Mainstream Records.

"Another reissue of the ultimate oud master. This is the follow-up to Expressions East and it is no less an impressive affair. Again on this album John has brought together some of the finest exponents of Armenian, Turkish, and Arabic music, including James Shahrigian (bass), Souren Baronian (clarinet, bongos), John Yalenezian (dumbeg), Jack Chalikian (canun), Steve Pumilia (finger cymbals, def, dumbeg, tambourine), John Valentine (guitar, dudoog) and Bob Tashjian (vocals).

'Aziza' is a driving Arabic instrumental with the oud and bongos setting the pace in frantic counter action. 'Bir-Demet Yasemen' is a dramatic presentation of 6/8 rhythm couples with a profound lyric. 'Sevan 5/4' is an instrumental native to Armenia. The title refers to the unorthodox 5/4 meter. 'Savgulum' is a pulsating example of a rhythm that never ceases; of a composition that is never forgotten. 'Yarus' is a prize in Armenian vocal composition. Here again one is struck by the profundity of the lyrics. 'Sevasda' features words and melody that are traditionally Turkish. The 6/8 time signature however, is common to much of the music for the Middle East. 'Rast Taksim' refers to a form of improvisation. It's often meant as an introductory passage, however, it's here presented as a complete work expressive of mood and emotion. 'Rast Sazsemi' -- the Sazsemi is a classic example of Turkish art music." --from the liner notes. "
