I've listened to Joseph Hellon's Ekkaleo roughly 6 times. Love the jazz and african touch. I first listened to Hellon playing a sax in 1994 in high school and was really amazed. A really talented musician, I have heard him play 'Take Five' on a (you wouldn't believe it) wandindi. Throw in Krucial Keys (Aaron Rimbui), Kanjii, JJ and the rest of the crew, and you have real quality production.
If you've been looking for positive, uplifting jazz from East Africa try out Ekkaleo . Visit Sternsmusic and SoundAfrica to listen to samples online.
