- aka moon: akasha vol 2
(1996, cd, bel, carbon 7)
Aka Moon will be doing a couple of concerts next month. I will see them at De Singer in Rijkevorsel (B) on 21/4, and also at 'De Casino' in Sint Niklaas (B) on 26/4.
I saw the band live for the first time only a couple of years ago, and it was absolutely breathtaking. One of the best gigs that I ever saw. And I've seen a few.
Fabrizio Cassol (sax), Michel Hatzigeorgiou (bass) and Stéphane Galland (drums) are top. If you want to catch a fine jazz concert, you know where to go.
To get in the mood, I pulled out "Akasha Vol.2", their 1996 album (and added the cover & other data to the United Mutations Archives). Recorded in 1995 in India with three local musicians, the album continues where "Vol.1" ended.
World music jazz? Whatever one might call it, I love it.
