- mulatu astatke & the heliocentrics: inspiration information 3
(2009, cd, usa, strut records)
Mulatu Astatke and The Heliocentrics team up for the third volume of Strut Records’ “Inspiration Information” series.
Mulatu Astatke is considered the founder of Ethiopian Jazz. He mixes traditional Ethiopian music with jazz.
The Heliocentrics is drummer Malcom Catto’s band. They fuse funk, jazz and electronics into a groovy mixture.
The result is very impressive.
Great jazz tunes, with an almost hypnotic groove. Sun Ra is never far away.
Worth checking out.
