A killer combination of sounds – the searing tenor sax of Getatchew Mekuria and the raspy guitars of The Ex – brought together here in really unique cross-cultural formation! Mekuria's influence really transforms the sound of The Ex – bringing their anarchic spirit into a strongly Ethiopian mode – one that's further underscored by some great guest horn work on clarinet, alto, and trombone – used like the kind of horn sections you'd find on Ethiopian recordings from the 70s – which lets Mekuria really do his thing by soloing over the tunes with a great deal of feeling. There's a bit of vocals on the record from GW Sok, but the main vibe is instrumental – and titles include "Ethiopia Hagere", "Sethed Seketlat", "Musicawi Silt", "Tezeta", "Almaz Yeharewa", "Che Belew Shellela", and "Eywat Setenafegagn".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Subtitled "Live At the Apollo Vol 3", but waaay better than any of the earlier volumes, this monster 2LP live set has James and the JB's wailing away in a freewheeling live set of hard hard hard funky grooves. Excellent work by the band, and a great way to see how sharp they were out of ... CD
