Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #130

December 8, 2016

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far. The album this week is Mulatu of Ethiopia by Mulatu Astatke.

Released in 1972 on Worthy Records. A hazy, mediative and argent album by the innovator or Ethio-Jazz, Mulatu Astatke. Having taken inspiration from American and Latin jazz, and combined it with elements of Ethiopia, his well rounded repertoire never fails to coruscate.
