Nashaz finds unexpected kinship between jazz and Arabic music, playing original music that stays true to the maqam tradition of the middle east while keeping the spontaneous interplay and energy of jazz at the forefront. Brian has played with musicians such as Michael Bates and Simon Shaheen and with the groups Sharq Attack, Zikrayat and the Bil Afrah Project.
