Bio
Night Ark is an instrumental quartet led by Ara Dinkjian, an American of Armenian descent. The ensemble blends the sounds of the Middle East with elements of rock, pop, jazz, and classical forms of music. The group came together in 1986 after Steve Backer, a producer for RCA, heard a demo of one of Dinkjian's original compositions and promptly issued an invitation to record. After pulling together the quartet, Dinkjian and his crew recorded the albums Moments and Picture. Night Ark next inked a deal with Polygram, which put out the albums In Wonderland and Petals on Your Path. The ensemble has played to sold-out houses in the Middle East and Europe. It has appeared at the Israel Festival, the Yerevan International Jazz Festival, and the Istanbul Jazz Festival. The group's songs utilize such traditional instruments as the saz, the zither, the oud, and the cumbus.
Dinkjian is ranked among the premiere oud players in the world. He was raised on the sounds of jazz, pop, and the music of Armenia. At Connecticut's Hartt College of Music, he earned the first degree granted there in the oud while studying theory and composition. Night Ark also includes Arto Tunçboyacıyan on percussion. He was born in Turkey of Armenian descent, and has worked with such artists as Al DiMeola and Joe Zawinul. Armen Donelian, who is also of Armenian heritage and has worked with Mango Santamaria and Sonny Rollins, plays piano for the group. Rounding out the quartet is Marc Johnson, who previously worked with Stan Getz, Pat Metheny, and Bill Evans, among others.

AMG Review
Picture is the recording debut of the quartet Night Ark, led by oud player Ara Dinkjian, who wrote most of the compositions and also plays canoon, cumbus, and Portuguese mandolin. This difficult-to-classify music was often filed under new age, though it was a bit too sophisticated for that label, and, as a result, the label probably had trouble promoting it to radio stations and critics. The leader's unusual interpretation of the Beatles' "Blackbird" opens with unaccompanied percussion and a brief, improvised oud solo before introducing its theme. Dinkjian's strongest compositions, including the lyrical opener "Trees" and the exotic extended suite "Of Song and Silence," feature piano rather than the DX7, which doesn't fit in with the otherwise all-acoustic sound of the group. Night Ark would only make one more recording for Novus before entering a long period of inactivity in the studio before their one-shot effort for Emarcy was recorded a decade following their debut; this long-out-of-print CD may be somewhat difficult to locate.

AMG Review
Night Ark is a group that draws from so many fields of music it proves difficult to label. Many (but not all) of the instruments featured on this release originated in the Middle East; leader Ara Dinkjian's specialty is the oud, but he also occasionally plays guitar and piano, along with the less-familiar canoon and cumbus. The music includes exotic originals by the group, each of which merits repeated listening. The most accessible cuts will include a relatively straightforward but imaginative treatment of Carole King's pop hit "You've Got a Friend" and a captivating arrangement of the old standard "Over the Rainbow," which is highlighted by Dinkjian's sterling improvised solo introduction on oud. Long out of print, this CD is worth acquiring, though it is far too sophisticated to be labeled new age, which is the section where it is likely to be found.

Amazon Review
Night Ark consists of four New-York-based jazz musicians, three of whom are of Armenian descent. While Petals On Your Path's first (and title track) is a perfectly formed piece of light, sweet Jazz FM fare--an unchallenging joy to listen to--the rest of the album sees the quartet explore their ethnic musical roots. On some tracks this is brought out through Ara Dinkjian's oud. Dinkjian, who is also the group's main composer, has a very clean approachable style of playing, weaving his instrument's native tones and tunings into more traditional and accessible jazz formats to intoxicating effect--the oud's answer to Pat Metheney. The highlights, though, are provided by the vocal excursions of percussionist Arto Tunçboyacıyan. Although obviously something of a flamboyant showman, Tunçboyacıyan's traditional singing style is irresistible, a romanticised, humanised version of Les Voix Bulgares, plaintively full of the exoticism of a homeland that's far away. A very special album.
