Louis Moholo Moholo new album launched tonight at the Vortex.

'An open letter to my wife Mpumi' is the title of the new album by Louis Moholo Moholo out on OGUN records.It sees a Sax front line of Ntshuks Bonga and Jason Yarde with John Edwards on Bass and the soulful South African pianist Pule Pheto plus myself on Vibes..Recorded at the later end of 2008 in the Solar powered recording studio at the Hackney Premises.The band play some new compositions by Pule and Jason..Following a couple of shows at the Vortex and an appearance at the EDGE 08 Cecil Taylor day at East london's Rich Mix venue the band had kicked into a new groove of cohesive expressions placed on a bed of funkiness!Not really but something even more interesting was happening resulting in a joyous celebration of the spirit that Louis brings to all musical excursions! Phew! Come along tonight to the Vortex in Dalston to see the band kick ass and present some of the music from the new album!
