Felipe Salles: Ugandan Suite (Tapestry Records)

Google+ Pinterest Print

Jazz musicians have connected with the music’s African roots since the days of Duke Ellington. On Ugandan Suite, Brazilian saxophonist Felipe Salles makes the journey with an international ensemble, focusing on the rhythms of one African nation. With solos that blow from cool to cacophony and ride over morphing polyrhythms, the music is reminiscent of the best Afro-jazz fusion of the ’70s.
