2006 NR

A few months before his death in 2006, the great Ethiopian vocalist Mohammed Jimmy Mohammed lent his soulful, bluesy sound to this live set with his trio and maverick free-jazz drummer Han Bennink. This joyful collaboration took place at the Banlieues Blues Festival in Paris. Bonus material includes an interview with the blind Addis Ababa-born singer Mohammed, who describes his approach to art, disability and faith.
