Another essential offering from Egypt, the Cairo Free Jazz Ensemble was formed by Salah Ragab and Hartmut Geerken. One of the only efforts of its kind to have existed in the country, their sole album Heliopolis - issued in 1970, is a stunning display of a sonic reality which remains almost entirely unknown. Enabled by Geerken’s connections with the Goethe-Institut in Cairo, original copies are as rare as they come - among the most sought after in the canon of recorded jazz
