Mulatu astatke and his ethiopian quintet afro latin soul vol 2


My father first played this for me, and I remember him going, “This is jazz.” It was the coolest thing to me. I’d hear my dad practicing all day long and go to his rehearsals and meet his friends’ kids. That’s where I met Ronald [Bruner Jr.] and Stephen [Bruner, aka Thundercat]. Music was always happening. Whenever my dad wasn’t practicing, he was listening to music. He had an amazing jazz collection, and my mom had stuff like Chaka Khan to help balance it out.

Like Johnny Mathis, Billie Holiday, and the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald Meklit has taken all that jazz has to offer and then broadcast it back to us in a popular mode.  We don’t have to reach for her music because it beckons to us.  We don’t have to be trained in order to understand the highly-developed themes of her lyrics because Meklit’s music is a spiritual gravity for our hearts.  She spins her songs and we drift unerringly toward a common center."
