The Heavenly Sweetness label get in there at the right time with their reissue of 1972’s Ethiopian Modern Instrumentals Hits. Released just as the Ethio-jazz revival hits fever-pitch, this LP features a bunch of cuts by the big man Mulatu Astatke as well as two entries apiece from Tèsfa-Maryam Kidané and Bahta Gèbrè-Heywèt. The styles range from classic Ethio-jazz slinks (Astake’s ‘Metche Dershe’) to hard-bopping twelve-bar blues (Kidane’s ‘Yetesfa Tezeta’).
