5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic, 10 Nov 2009
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. He is a true pioneer of African music and 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.

This album is truly the perfect way to introduce yourself to this man's incredible style of music. It spans his whole career and contains some absolute gems. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in Ethio-Jazz or the world music scene, and also to those who already have a great love for it. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dont judge a CD by its cover, 5 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't to sure about buying this,Its the first CD Iv'e bought by a Ethiopian artist but I must admit Iv'e stumbled on a great offering of an African, American and latin jazz melting pot. My favourite track has to be Mulatu, worth it for this track alone.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would definitely recommend this. Mulatu Astatke has a very distinctive style and all the songs on the album are wonderful. You can put it on whenever and I just can't stop listening to it.
