A preamble to dr. LM
This one isn't exactly novel [within the blogoverse] nor as exotic as it might look. John Berberian is an Armenian-descendent born and raised in NY. Notwithstanding, he managed to become an authority in the Oud (worth mentioning his father was an accomplished player himself), bringing considerable western attention to the instrument and middle eastern music in general. This record is probably the most accessible and delightful one, with all the honours. I can't find a single moment in the album that I dislike.
ps. for the scrobbler chaps, I've given up finding an ideal way to tag his albums.
