DESCRIPTION
Full title is: New York - Addis - London - The Story Of Ethio Jazz 1965-1975. This release is truly is the essential Mulatu, covering his first recordings in the UK during 1965, his groundbreaking fusions for the small Worthy label in New York and his key 70s recordings back in Addis on Amha, Phillips and Axum. Vibraphone and keyboard player, master arranger and bandleader, Mulatu Astatke is one of the all-time greats of Ethiopian music and the creator of his own original music form, Ethio jazz. Through the acclaimed Ethiopiques album series and through featuring on the soundtrack to the Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers, his music has belatedly reached a global audience and a new, younger generation of fans. In November of last year, he recorded an inspired new album with London psych jazz band The Heliocentrics for Strut's 'Inspiration Information' studio collaboration series. The new retrospective album features comprehensive sleeve notes by Miles Cleret, boss of the excellent Soundway Records imprint, and rare, previously unseen photos from Mulatu's personal archive.
