Mulatu seems to have re-emerged the absolute don father of all things cool and fresh sounding in the jazz scene.  His new album Mulatu Steps Ahead really doesn’t underwhelm after previously releasing an incredible collaboration album with the Heliocentric’s. Its as experimental as it is diverse, fusing styles from the US, North-Eastern Africa and even Wales (The place Mulatu originally discovered jazz while attending a Welsh boarding school).

The above artwork was created by Jonas Lynch. The painting is on a 3×4 feet in area and is painted on a white canvas, the background of the painting is made with phone book white pages, Jonas’ trademark.

Check out one of my fav tunes from the new album Multau Steps Ahead. Sunny day park music to the max:
