Lloyd Miller & The Heliocentrics: “Pari Ruu”

[audio:http://alarm-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/pari_ruu.mp3|titles=Lloyd Miller & The Heliocentrics: “Pari Ruu”]

A noted ethnomusicologist and incredibly gifted multi-instrumentalist, Lloyd Miller is a gem of the pre-digital age, a crate-digger’s favorite who infused traditional jazz with Persian and Asian influences — a result of time spent abroad in his youth and again in adulthood. This time around, funk/jazz/psych collective The Heliocentrics hooks up with Miller for another great Strut Records collaboration, resulting in throwback jazz with instrumental and harmonic accents from around the globe.
