Carlos Niño & Friends - Flute, Echoes, It's All Happening! (Leaving Records)

A musical UFO, is how I'd coined Californian producer Carlos Niño to anyone not familiar with is genius. Alongside his inseparable string master friend Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, he has relentlessly been irrading us with cosmic spiritual Jazz vibes for more than a decade now. His latest project, out now on Leaving Records, is a condensed version of his intense creativity.

Spiced-up by several high profiles guests, such as Sax whizz-kid Kamasi Washington (whose phenomenal debut LP last year was part of our 2015 Favorites selection), this indefinable Yogi-style musical journey fits well with West Coast legendary free-jazz-like legacy. Think Alice Coltrane, think The Doors most remote cuckoo-land moments, or, more recently, the Flying Lotus/Thundercat spacy productions.
So open this gate to sweet transcendental meditation, and get organically high, it's all happening here!
