Erik Truffaz Saloua
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Blue Note
You can‘t help but make the Bitches Brew comparison-the ethereal-rock temperament of "Salou" and "Ghost Drummer" invoke Miles in a not-so-silent way. Yet French trumpeter Erik Truffaz gets very quiet, quizzically so. Saloua is filled with interlocking influences, from dub rock tributes to serene soliloquies to Tunisian devotional chants by the mighty Mounir Troudi, whose Arabic plays gracefully off Swiss rapper Nya‘s insightful punctuation. After a few spins you realize you don‘t know where Saloua begins or ends. The goal is the journey, and for globetrotting Truffaz it is further testament to a catalog destined to be as classic as his sonic ancestry.
