In Passing is an oud and clarinet/bass clarinet duo project that explores the intersections of a number of jazz sensibilities and music cultures of the Middle East. It emerged from a dynamic year of collaborating with Gabe Lavin in 2015 and 2016, and we're so grateful that we had the opportunity to record the music that we spent so much time writing and performing together. We also had the honor of including incredible performances by Albert Agha on vocals and Pablo Infante-Amate on riqq. Here's a track from the album featuring Albert:
