Amir ElSaffar's Two Rivers Ensemble

It’s hard not to be swept away with last year’s Inana, the trumpeter’s valentine to a Mesopotamian goddess of carnal pleasures. Folding Middle Eastern motifs into a post-Ornette design schema, ElSaffar creates a sweeping suite that has time to both erupt and ruminate, sometimes simultaneously. Bet the live show brings even more power to the fore.
