9/10 Brett Staff review, 29 October 2009
Storming in this week is a new compilation of genius Ethiopian composer and vibraphonist Mulatu Astatke's early work. Ethiopia's highly distinctive approach to jazz incorporates generous portions of soul, funk, pop and rock over a lolling bedrock of loose, relaxed African rhythms to make a sound that's highly listenable and homes straight in on your brain's pleasure centre to leave you grinning from ear to ear. Fans of his frequent contributions to the amazing Ethiopiques series will know what to expect of New York-Addis-London: The Story of Ethio Jazz 1965-1975 and will probably own a few of the twenty tracks already but even for those devotees this is a wholly worthwhile collection and for newcomers interested in his stuff (perhaps introduced by his collaboration with The Heliocentrics) it's a gimme. A great comp on both CD and double LP from the good people at Strut!
