Cochemea Gastelum – The Electric Sound of Johnny Arrow

Been listening to this a lot lately. Killer percussion-heavy vibes in the Funk, Afrobeat, Latin and Jazz realm from Cochemea Gastelum, saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist  extraordinaire (on this platter he plays electric saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, alto saxophone, flute, bass clarinet, organ, piano, Fender Rhodes, clavinet, vibraphone, string ensemble, drums, percussion!) for the Dap-Kings and Robert Walter’s 20th Congress as well being featured on countless albums including those from the Menahan Street Band, Budos Band, Bebel Gilberto, The Black Lips, Archie Shepp, Amy Winehouse, Soulive and the band for the Broadway music Fela! to name just a few. Dig the infectious sounds!
