Adramelech: The Book Of Angels Volume 22

Zion80: Adramelech: The Book Of Angels Volume 22 (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Zion80 is the brainchild of guitarist Jon Madof, a wildly popular project that seamlessly blends the Afro-pop stylings of the legendary Fela Kuti with the Jewish tradition. Featuring an exciting 11-piece all-star band, Madof masterfully blends horns, guitars, keyboards and percussion, mixing the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat with the freewheeling madness of the Downtown scene. A one of a kind ascent into the unknown, Madof's creative arrangements of 8 tunes from Zorn's "Book of Angels"are spiritual and endlessly exciting."-Tzadik
