Global A Go-Go: Friday August 16, 5-7 PM presents:
Ever heard a guy scat-sing Miles Davis in the Akan language? (Ever been in a cockpit before? Ever seen a grown man naked? But I digress: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfgO90yGusI.)
Well this is your lucky week, because I'm in possession of a record by Ghana's Gyedu-Blay Ambolley (pictured above shilling for Google Plus — don't be evil, Gyedu-Blay) on which he does just that — it's quite surprising and fabulous. On a related jazzy tip, you'll also hear a nice long piece from Mulatu Astatke's brand-new album and a beautiful unreleased Hotel X jam.
Also featured this week: global deep soul, mo' cumbia and some Balkan blasters to kick off your weekend — wash 'em down with slivovitz.
