Ibrahim Maalouf performs at the Jazz Bakery at Theatre Raymond Kabbaz

The trumpeter melds jazz and Arabic music.

January 10, 2013

Born in Lebanon and based in Paris, acclaimed trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf uses a quarter-tone trumpet to meld the sound of jazz with the sonic building blocks of Arabic music. Though such a meeting could sound jarring to the uninitiated, Maalouf makes it sound intoxicatingly natural on his moody new album "Wind," a recording inspired by Miles Davis' soundtrack work for Louis Malle's "Elevator to the Gallows." The Jazz Bakery at Theatre Raymond Kabbaz, 10361 Pico Blvd., L.A. Thu., 7:30 p.m. $35 http://www.jazzbakery.com.
