Many people who have never heard the name of Mulo Francel will nonetheless be aware of his playing, because the saxophonist is one of the founder members of Germany's most successful world music group Quadro Nuevo, which has been in existence since 1996. For Francel, this band provides the ideal means to channel any need he might have for travel, and also to give musical expression to his innate curiosity about other cultures.
“Mocca Swing” is a retrospective of the musical creativity of Mulo Francel. It documents his role as a passionate builder of bridges between young and old, one’s home country and abroad, and between jazz and other music genres. It is a thoroughly enjoyable counterweight to the kind of insidious music that we hear everywhere, which has been deprived not just of its secrets but also of its magic.
Above all, this album lives up to the promise of its title: it is hot, appealing and enlivening.
