There are few people in the Western world who know nothing of the Great Pyramids of Giza & the treasures of Tutankhamon's tomb, but, for most, that is the full scope of their knowledge of Egyptian art. It is extraordinary how little general awareness there is of the fantastic wealth of this best-preserved art of all the ancient civilizations, so overshadowed has it been by the later and–for the West–more influential achievements of Greece and Rome.

With Painting Signs, Eric Bibb makes a fine case for blues as a music of introspection, warmth, and supreme nuance. Easily his most mature album to date, Painting Signs continues Bibb's formula of socially aware songs performed from an acutely personal point-of-view; standout tracks "Don't Ever Let Nobody Drag Your Spirit Down" and a cover of "Hope in a Hopeless World" hammer home his message of individual freedom and the responsibilities that accompany it. (It's no coincidence that Pops Staples, to whom Bibb dedicates this album, once recorded the latter song.) That's not to say Painting Signs is overly didactic or, indeed, "heavy" in any way; even the most serious songs here, like the plea for peace and unity "Got To Do Better," are leavened by a musical backdrop that's soulful and immediately accessible. Gospel-leaning backing vocals by Linda Tillery and her Cultural Heritage Choir help flesh out several cuts, and robust accordion fills by Bibb's longtime accompanist Janne Petersson add a subtle Louisiana flavor to the rolling, propulsive "Kokomo" and, to surprisingly good effect, the deep-grooved version of Jimmy Reed's "Honest I Do."

Drummer and multi-instrumentalist Salah Ragab was a central figure in the history of jazz in Egypt. A sometime collaborator with Sun Ra, Ragab founded the Cairo Jazz Band in 1968, the same year that he became the head of the Egyptian Military Music Department. The Cairo Jazz Band was Egypt's first big band, mixing American jazz with North African music, combining jazz instrumentation and musical style with indigenous melodies and instruments, like the nay (bamboo flute) and the baza (ramadan drum). Such musical cross-fertilization was not unusual in itself; American musicians from Sun Ra to Yusef Lateef had long been fascinated by the music of Islam and North Africa, incorporating both the instruments and musical forms of the Fertile Crescent into their work. But Salah Ragab’s music presents a topsy-turvied perspective, a view from the other side of the musical equation of West meets Middle East.

In Egypt 1888, famous Victorian Flinders Petrie finally broke into the burial chamber of King Amenemhat III – one of the wealthiest pharaohs of the Middle Kingdom. Petrie had hoped that the discovery of the King’s tomb would make his name, and perhaps his fortune. But after a year of digging when he finally peered into the resting place of the old king, he found that the tomb had been plundered. Every item of any value had been stolen and not a single trace of the robbers had been left behind. Someone somehow had pulled off the heist of the millennium.
