BTW Have you checked out Ukandanz yet? One of my fave releases this year that combines a funky RIOesque form of avantguarde music with Ethiopian music? 
Steve(HolyMoly) wrote a brilliant review of it - awarding it with the full monty.

Just checking out Ukandanz now - sounds goods, definitely my kind of stuff.

It's a goody!

My opinion of it has been recently shaded somewhat upon realizing that a lot of the tunes are actually covers, albeit extremely well arranged covers. I listened to a couple of the originals and they were great too!   It's still a thoroughly enjoyable album though, if not quite as "original" as I had previously thought.

Ethiopian jazz and popular tunes, mostly.

The opening track on Ukandanz's album is a cover of this:

It's just a way to be sure the same person is not voting 10x for the same albums (which was happenning on the beginning) Wink

I've only just recieved that and had a couple of listens but its a bit of a disappointment to me tbh. I think I had my expectation level set far too high with the addition of Andy Edwards.

Oh that's too bad. I haven't listened to it yet, but certainly I'd like to form some kind of an opinion of the album soon.
Andy Edwards is a pretty good drummer and did fill in adequately for Paul Cook with IQ
If you have sensitive and analytical sound equipment quality after market audio interconnects/cables make a HUGE difference in overall sound quality...Wider soundstage, reduced microphonics etc etc..
