Astatke, Mulatu – “Mulatu Steps Ahead” – [Strut]

Astatke is an Ethiopian jazz vibraphonist – among his many claims to fame is that he was the first African student at the Berklee School of Music. This album, recorded in sessions from 2007 to 2009, displays his compositions and arrangements. Many of the tracks are performed with the Either/Orchestra. I hear influences from Africa, funk, blues, Latin, and big band jazz.

Big rich sounds with a variety of sounds, solid vibe playing.
