Ahmed Abdullah is a trumpeter, composer, arranger, educator, organizer and bandleader who has led his own ensembles since 1972.
His groups have at times been called Abdullah, The Solomonic Unit, Diaspora or most recently Ebonic Tones. As a performing artist, his first recording as a leader was a track on the Wildflower Series Volume 3 in 1976. The session was produced by Alan Douglass in association with Sam Rivers. The series stands as a testament to the adventurous music and its creators in the 1970's Loft Movement. For the last thirty years, Ahmed has spent his time performing in various capacities while developing his many talents. During that period he has toured, recorded or performed with the Sun Ra Arkestra, (he's on twenty-five recordings with Sun Ra) Ed Blackwell, Arthur Blythe, Billy Bang, Ms. Dianne McIntyre, Sam Rivers, Hamiet Bluiett, Rashid Ali and his own groups.
