AllMusic Review by

The 2014 single-disc compilation The Rough Guide to Arabic Jazz, brings together a nice cross-section of Middle Eastern artists who combine Arabic musical traditions with contemporary jazz traditions. Included are cuts by such artists as Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Ahmad Kaabour, and others. These are exploratory, evocative cross-culture sounds.
