Album Notes

In ALMOST BLUE, their highly anticipated third album, Underground Horns
 are mixing Afro Funk, New Orleans, Haitian and Ethio Jazz elements into a deep grooving sonic gumbo. 
They are calling their trademark sound "MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!"

For the most part this album is instrumental but the song Creole features djembe player Okai on vocals, singing in his parents native tongue Haitian Creole. There are other tunes with African or African diaspora rhythms like Goodbye Pork Pie Hat (Highlife) and Mopti, written by world music pioneer Don Cherry.

Full Moon is a funk burner and House Song incorporates impulses from electronic music but in a completely acoustic setting.
And there are Ethio Jazz tunes: Cha Cha, written by Mulatu Astatke and the originals Ethio and Almost Blue.
