When Sting reopened the Bataclan in Paris in 2016, he could only think of one French musician with whom he wanted to share the stage that night: Ibrahim Maalouf. Understandably, since the French-Lebanese jazz trumpeter stands for passion, hope and versatility. The fourth (!) valve of his trumpet has allowed Maalouf to introduce Arabic influences into his virtuoso jazz music for years. At the same time, his latest record S3NS is full of Latin rhythms. “I always take my fans on a journey,” Maalouf once said in the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant. Which could not be more accurate. So far, he also didn’t lie when he famously said: “If I ever make a record that resembles the previous one, you can tell me to stop playing.” S3NS is once again so different and bold that, on July 9, you will only want to tell him to keep playing!
