Description

The Sorcerers – The Sorcerers (LP Reissue white vinyl) [ATA Records ATALP002]

 

Introducing the vinyl reissue of the debut album from The Sorcerers. Reissued on limited white vinyl with new liner notes. The debut release was championed by Ethio-Jazz legend Mulatu Astatke on his Addis Abbaba radio show. The Sorcerers take influences from Ethiopiques Ethio-jazz as well as the soundtracks to the European horror films of the 60s and 70s and the British library music of the same era & blend them into one cohesive package.

Made up of various stalwarts of the vibrant Leeds Jazz/World scene, they were originally formed to contribute some tracks to the compilation “Funk, Soul & Afro Rarities: An Introduction To ATA Records” released in 2014 on Here & Now Records. After receiving a favourable response to their contributed tracks and garnering support from the likes of Strut Records founder Quinton Scott and Radio 3’s Nick Luscombe (Late Junction) they decided to develop their sound further before recording their debut album.

Recorded at ATA Records’ analog recording studio using vintage analog equipment from the 60s and 70s, the album contains 8 original compositions that reference influences as diverse as Mulatu Astatke, Moondog, Kpm, and Giallo soundtracks. Huey Morgan made the opening track “Pinch Of The Death Nerve” his “Beat Of The Week” on his BBC6 Music radio show. Mulatu Astake played the album on his Addis Abbaba radio show with additional UK radio support from Wah Wah 45’s Dom Servini, Shawn Lee on his Soho Radio show, Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone BBC6, and Gilles Peterson.
