Reinventing various psychedelic wheels has been the name of the world music game for a while, so it's about time someone made Ethio-jazz their vehicle. And what a vehicle Debo Band has renovated with their debut. This Boston collective is well-versed in the prickly pentatonics, gently out-of-sync rhythms and snaking melodies that make up a heady Ethio-groove (see any of the classic covers and originals here). But things get really interesting when those grooves are used as a jumping off point into klezmer ("Habesha"), cabaret ("Ambassel") and jazz from Gypsy to NOLA. An exhilarating ride!
