Chifara Strut present the first official reissue of a landmark album in the field of African music, Mulatu Astatke’s ‘Mulatu Of Ethiopia’ from 1972. Recorded in New York, the album arrived at a time when Astatke had begun to master the delicate fusion of styles needed to create Ethio jazz. I left the UK for America and studied at Berklee College in Boston.

Mulatu of Ethiopia was a distinctive record in Astatke’s discography, following the release of his ’60s Latin jazz release Afro-Latin Soul. Mulatu has created a new sound, said producer Gil Snapper on the album jacket. He has taken the ancient five-tone scales of Asia and Africa and woven them into something unique and exciting; a mixture of three cultures, Ethiopian, Puerto Rican and American. Mulatu Astatke is performing at this year’s Psycho Las Vegas festival in August.

Mulatu Of Ethiopia is the third album Astatke recorded in New York for the Worthy label but the first with a recognisably Ethiopian character. In his liner notes for Mulatu Of Ethiopia, label owner Gil Snapper makes the prescient prediction that Astatke is destined to make international musical history. A trail-blazing masterpiece which sold only.

Mulatu Astatqé (also sometimes spelled Mulatu Astatke, as he is on the liner notes to this release) might be most known to international audiences through his tracks on the excellent Ethiopiques CD anthology series of Ethiopian music. Long before those tracks were compiled for that series, however, he had an American release with this 1972 instrumental album, on which he's billed as "Mulatu of Ethiopia. Like much of the best of the circa-early-'70s contemporary Ethiopian music on Ethiopiques, it's a fine, at times captivating blend of late-'60s American soul and.

User reviews
Very nicely done reissue. Nice packaging, but I don't like tri-fold sleeves, no practical, but beside that good pressing quality and sound. I agree that mono mix sounds the best and third record with outtakes is also not boring and actually worth to listen to as well. Timeless classic IMHO.
Could anyone who owns it give more information about this release (matrix/runout, photos of labels & backcover, description), thank you! I think I own this version, here's the info: Matrix/Rounout / Side A: -42710- STRUT129LPB-AMatrix/Rounout / Side A: -42710- STRUT129LPB-BBarcode: 7 30003 31291 5Sticker on front: "Official reissue of classic 1972 Ethio jazz LP featuring new interview with Mulatu Astatke.

Is this the stereo or mono master mix? Anyone that hasn't heard the mono mix needs to - it's crisper, fatter and much heavier!!
