Jon Madof - Zion80 (Tzadik 2013)

Another Recent Arrival

Wow! Arrived yesterday and blowing my mind straight away. Put on to this by fellow blogger Sarah and what a great recommendation. The Fela Kuti connection had me interested right away but not all Afrobeat influenced music tickles my fancy. This album just rocks, Jewish afro-funk cum prog rock combined to perfection on this non stop roller-coaster of a record and will appeal those who loved John Zorn's Masada Rocks and Electric Masada. No weak links here just 60 minutes of pure joy and pleasure. One of those records that just blows you away on the first listen and holds up well after several repeats.Rating 5/5.
