'Cranes And Carpets' is the entirely instrumental debut album by Berlin based Onom Agemo And The Disco Jumpers, a quintet around multi-instrumentalist Johannes Schleiermacher (keyboards, percussion, winds) giving its groovy and slightly psychedelic take on genres like afrobeat ('No Stitches', 'Trudy The Monster'...), Ethio-jazz ('Cool Runnings') and gnawa ('Issawa'). The free jazz influenced 'Badminton' was not really our cup of tea, but we absolutely enjoyed the other seven tracks on this album.
