5.0 out of 5 stars the original and the best, 4 Nov. 2013
This review is from: New Wave - Jazz On Film (Audio CD)
Of the two very similar New Wave box sets recently released this one is the clear winner. 13 soundtracks on 6 CDs (rather than 7 soundtracks on 5 CDs), including And God Created Woman, Black Orpheus and the classic Knife in the Water! The only reason the French New Wave set got all the newspaper reviews is because it came out first, but this one is the real deal. The label Moochin' About put out the first two Jazz On Film box sets, and the exemplary standards of those releases are maintained here. Content, price, packaging... five stars all the way!

4.0 out of 5 stars counterpoint, 10 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Sketches of Ethiopia (Audio CD)
Someone has to provide a counter argument to the frankly pathetic one-star review (by someone who cannot even spell the artist's name correctly). So, whether or not any listener prefers this album to any of Mulatu's previous works is basically irrelevant - there is no way this album can be rated one star! Mulatu is a consummate artist who continues to craft beautiful music in his own unique and untouchable way. His Step Ahead band are chosen from amongst London's finest jazz musicians. Mulatu deserves every respect and this new album is well worth getting, for existing fans and new.

5.0 out of 5 stars all is rosey, 28 July 2010
This album is a much-deserved stab at mainstream commercial success from a lady who is one of the greatest names in Calypso history. From the majestic ska-pop sing a along of Israel By Bus, to the Calypso lament Back to Africa and a new version of Rose's famous Rum & Coca Cola, every song here is a winner. This is not the purest Calypso, but is pure joy. I absolutely fail to understand how someone could rate this album with a miserly one star.
