why we love this

The unique sound of Shabason always moves us. Especially this deeply personal album of his takes us through a whole array of emotions. Painting different shades of calming sounds - some dark, some light, some uplifting.

about the record

Across eight tracks that mesh jazz-laced, emotive, and spacious composition with fourth-world and adult-contemporary tonality, Toronto saxophonist Joseph Shabason sketches an auditory map of the transcendence, unity, conditioning, and eventual renunciation of his upbringing in an Islamic and Jewish dual-faith household.

The Fellowship follows a chronological arc that spans three generations covering his parents’ early lives, his own spiritual and physical adolescence, and his subsequent struggle to eschew the problematic habituations of such a conflicted past.

On The Fellowship, Joseph Shabason does what only the best instrumental music makers can: tell a story with emotional clarity that conveys even the subtlest of feelings, all without singing a single word. As wordless as ever - with as complex a theme as ever - this album may be his most emotionally articulate yet.
