Trilok Gurtu – Manteca

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

"Spellbound" is a homage to trumpeters by Indian percussion legend Gurtu – starting with a 30-second jam with the late Don Cherry from the 1970s, and moving through originals and pieces by Cherry, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis as interpreted by an all-star brass cast.

“Manteca” (Dizzy Gillespie, Walter Fuller, Luciano Gonzales)

from an album “Spellbound” (Original Release Date: March 8, 2019).

“With Spellbound, Gurtu has delivered one of his best records to date, a compelling marriage of his own cultural heritage with a jazz tradition clearly open to the pan-cultural musings of each and every one of his superb guest trumpeters—and his equally impressive trio mates.” – All Abou Jazz.
