In A Mellow Tone
Wednesday March 27th, 2019 with Jim Reil
Recordings from trumpet player and composer Ambrose Akinmusire and the great Nigerian musician and freedom fighter Fela Kuti

Tonight we listen to two very different albums: last year's Origami Harvest from trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, a wild blend of classical, hip hop and jazz; and Underground System, a 1992 recording from Fela Kuti on which jazz and Afrobeat pair up beautifully.

Enjoying the show. As a DJ I relish 10 min + grooves on Fela records for short breaks!
