Sahib Shihab (American jazz musician)

~ Person


Born Edmond Gregory, gifted multi-instrumentist Sahib Shihab began his career at... 12 years old.
He then entered history at the sides of Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey before the end of the 40's, and was one of the first black musicians to convert to Islam and change his name.
To be preceeded by no one, he left to Europe early, where he stayed until the late 80's.
While he doesn't left us many records of his own, amateurs will still find great pleasure with Conversations on Black Lion, avant-guardiste and still deadly bop (featuring NHOP).
