Mulatu Astatke - New York - Addis - London - The Story Of Ethio Jazz 1965 - 1975
Vibraphone and keyboard player, master arranger and bandleader, Mulatu Astatke is one of the all-time greats of Ethiopian music and the creator of his own original music form, Ethio jazz. Through the acclaimed Ethiopiques album series and through featuring on the soundtrack to the Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers, his music has belatedly reached a global audience and a new, younger generation of fans. In November of last year, he recorded an inspired new album with London psych jazz band The Heliocentrics for Strut's "Inspiration Information" studio collaboration series. Now, Strut are proud to present, for the first time anywhere, the definitive Mulatu career retrospective covering his landmark ?60s and ?70s recordings. Mulatu is a true pioneer of African music. He was the first Ethiopian musician of his generation to travel extensively and to record abroad. He studied in the UK in Wales and at Trinity College Of Music in London, cutting his teeth on the buoyant London jazz scene of the early ?60s. He became the first African student to attend Harvard and he lived and recorded in New York, developing a unique sound that fused Western jazz with traditional Ethiopian melodies.
Strut
Strut Records is a London-based record label, founded in 1998 by Quinton Scott, specializing in reissues and rarities. Since 2008 it is a sub label of !K7 Records. The history of Strut Records can be divided into two phases. In the first phase from 1998 until 2003 Quinton Scott was widely known for his musical discoveries and for the lovingly designed booklets of the label. Especially his discoveries in Italo disco, afro-beat and calypso were outstanding. But after years of sacrifices he was forced to take a break. In the second phase !K7 Records stepped in in 2008 and kept Strut Records going again. Not just did they build a new studio, but started a label series bringing two very different musicians together on one record. Informaton Inspiration (that’s the name of the series) brought together Sly Robbie and Amp Fiddler, Mulatu Astatke and The Heliocentrics or Jimi Tenor and Tony Allen. Another highlight was the release of Grandmaster Flash’s first studio album in 20 years, The Bridge.
