The Summer of Endless Levitation (Hell Yeah! Records, 2023)
Three members of the legendary New York underground Jazz/Electronic band M'lumbo
did a regimen of Shamanic Travelling at the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic in New
York City. These experiences led them to quickly and spontaneously compose/perform a suite of pieces informed both by a desire to create a kind of folk music evoking painter/sculptor Jean (Hans) Arp's 'biomorphic' works [shapes that evoke natural lifeforms without depicting any specifically, of which they all shared occasional visions] and the feelings of isolation and indefinite exile yet to come in their urban environment.
Compared to the works they have done as part of the larger band M'lumbo, this was to be a more modest, naive affair.
This album is a vehicle for the renewal of feeling, using only a few instruments [acoustic
and electric guitar, keyboard, flute, small percussion, kalimba and clarinet] and locating
a sense of both the deep sadness and uplifting powers of reverie.

M'lumbo takes the familiar and makes the earth slide.
– New York Newsday
It's Mickey Mouse, the Stanford University marching band, Santana and
Syd Barrett rolled into one... borders on genius.
– Baltimore City Paper
M'lumbo makes world music for some world other than Earth.
– Dirty Linen
To approach a merely adequate description, try and imagine a combination
of Miles Davis, Sun Ra, traditional African music, and early Bonzo Dog
Band... Very exciting, filled with unbridled energy and humor. The
musicianship is superb and the arrangements exceptionally creative.
