One of the only people i've been really dying to see again.

 

First time was brilliant.

Nice! Do you know if he's bringing a band or if the Heliocentrics are on this one?

I was wondering that too. No Idea.

 

I'll ask the promoter here.

 

 

Seems from his facebook page that he's been playing with the "Steps Ahead Band"

 

which could be that future-Jazz route Steps were talking about for their comeback

 

Certainly dressed the part

Ha! I just got 30 seconds into writing a reply before I realised that is actually Steps and not his band :$

 

Mulatu is a legend regardless, but he is a band leader and vibes player (bearing in mind vibes don't feature heavily on a lot of his classic stuff). So for me the band he's with makes a big difference. Predictably, the Heliocentrics nailed some of those classics as pretty much no other band today could and although I've only heard a bit of him with other bands, as good as they were, they weren't really doing it for like Catto et al.

Yeah the Heliocentrics were amazing. I haven't checked any recent clips,

 

But i did see this in the comments of a guardian review from Feb....
