Queen's Dominion is the solo debut from Pharaoh's Daughter leader Basya Schechter. Almost entirely instrumental, this album is also somewhat more stripped down instrumentally than that band, with a core group of oud, santur, violin and percussion with guests on some tracks. The sound of this ensemble is a delight. The pairing of oud and santur is an exquisite combination and the more sustained tones of the violin are a perfect complement. The playing is excellent. This is the type of album where there are no real highlights as each piece is beautiful and sublime

Brooklyn born Basya Schechter, leader of the stellar Jewish roots world jazz band Pharaoh's Daughter, here delivers an all-instrumental album of great depth and spirituality. An oud player of uncommon accomplishment, she seems to have a natural affinity for this odd instrument's timbral universe, one which evokes sounds similar to those one associates with a lute, a bouzouki, a sarod, even a berimbau.
