Description
"Salah Ragab formed the first jazz big band in Egypt (The Cairo Jazz Band) in 1968, he was also the leader of the Military Music Departments in Heliopolis. Some of the best musicians in Egypt of that time were members of the band such as Zaki Osman: trumpet, Saied Salama: tenor sax, Khamis El-Kholy: piano and Ala Mostafa: piano. On this recording, the band consists of five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass, drums and percussion. These recordings present Salah Ragab and The Cairo Jazz Band's definitive work, recorded in Heliopolis, Egypt between 1968 and 1973."
