Karl Hector - Jazz Modal du Monde

Karl Hector - Jazz Modal Du Monde
(MP3 Podcast on 2011-06-03

Karl Hector plays in various bands we admire at Paris DJs: The Poets of Rhythm, The Whitefield Brothers, Afrobeat Academy with Ebo Taylor... He released with The Malcouns in 2008 one of the albums of the year, Sahara Swing, and has just issued Tamanrasset on Now-Again Records, a fantastic EP with 5 new tracks of Afrodelic kraut-funk. He'll be paying with Ebo Taylor tonight in Paris for Radio Nova's Nuits Zebrees and there are many other dates scheduled in France and Europe until August (check the rest of this entry). All this calls for celebration so here's an exclusive new mix, all trippy modal jazz, the perfect soundtrack for a Paris DJs night mood...
