I just discovered Tigran Hamasyan, a truly phenomenal musician from Armenia.
From a brief search on YouTube, you see him performing with people like Dhafer Youssef, Trilok Gurtu, Lars Danielsson and Nguyen Le. In a few clips he’s joined on drums by Marc Giuliano, who I know as Erik Trufazz’s drummer.
This guy is incredible!
On the video below his Trio is joined by Nguyen Le, a very good jazz guitarist. To me Nguyen has a 70’s Jazz Fusion sound – so nice.
Be patient and stick with the intro or skip ahead to about 3:30 for the instruments to kick in.
A few of Tigran’s other songs I’ve loved so far are:
