Exit Athens

A 1 track world fusion single (3m 53s) — released September 1st 2023 on ATA Records

ATA Records are proud to announce this new release from UK Ethio-Jazz group, The Sorcerers.

Exit Athens marks the start of a new era for The Sorcerers. Continuing their investigations of Ethio-Jazz and 60s and 70s European library music, the group is now formed around Joost Hendrickx (Kefaya, Shatner's Bassoon, Abstract Orchestra), Richard Ormrod (saxes, flute & keys) and ATA label head, bassist Neil Innes. Exit Athens features a driving funk engine room combined with exotic percussion, vintage keyboards, and the classic Addis Ababa combination of vibes, flute and oh-so-solid horns. Channelling the maximal, saturated aesthetic of 70s exploitation thrillers, The Sorcerers hope this sound will have you on the edge of your seat throughout!

Great stuff as always - Gilles Peterson BBC6, WorldWideFM

This new 7" from The Sorcerers and The Outer World Jazz Ensemble is a must have. Both sides are fire - Kev Beadle BBE/MindFluidRadio
