The Timeless live performance series organized by Mochilla – epic
tribute concerts held in honor of some of the great composer/
arrangers and all around massively influential musical figures of their generations– Ethio funk founder Mulatu, Brazilian folk jazz great Arthur Verocai and hip hop genius J Dilla – captured here in this incredible DVD box set! The concerts were held in February and March of 2009, and each features a sprawling roster of guest musicians who were inspired by these towering figures, distilled into an excellent 73 minute program, with slideshows and special features. Delicious stereo sound and beautifully presented in black & white! The Mulatu Astatke show was composed & arranged by Mulatu, hosted by Eothen "Egon" Alapatt and Garth Trinidid – with guests including Bennie Maupin, Azar Lawrence, Phil Ranelin, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and many more! They perform Yejermo Sew", "I Faram Gami", "Yekatit", "Mulatu", "Ebo Lala" and more. The Dilla tribute is billed as A Suite For Ma Dukes (Dilla's moms is rightly proud of Mr Yancey and deserves to be honored for his work) features Miguel Atwood-Ferguson fronting a 60-piece orchestra – if that doesn't speak volumes for Dilla's legacy, what could? Guests include Bilal, Dwele, Talib Kweli, Pos of De La Soul, Karriem Riggins and others. Titles include "Morning Order", "Antiquity", "Gobstopper", "Jealousy", "Angel", "Stakes Is High" and more. Arthur Verocai composes, arranges and conducts to show in his honor, and the show was hosted by Egon and Doom (!!!) – with some legendary guests such as Ivan Conti, Airto Moreira, Jose Bertrami and others. Titles include "Karina", "Sylvia", "Dedicada A Ela", "Securi", "Flying To LA", "Na Boca Do Sol" and more.
