4 1/2 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

This is a terrific-sounding Italian compilation of sounds by Sahib Shihab, the great saxophonist and flutist who is criminally under-recognized for his contribution not only to the language of hard bop, but for his multi-dimensional look at world music and his influence on sou- jazz and the harder swinging big bands that recorded for MPS in the 1960s and '70s. A complete iconoclast, Shihab followed the beat of his own drummer and that is clearly on display here, in recordings compiled between 1964 and 1970, after he moved to Europe and hooked up with Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland, playing in their big band and smaller groups.
