    Multiculturalism's Not Dead

    The cover of the late Fred Ho and the Afro Asian Music Ensemble's latest disc offers as good a description as any of what to expect from the music. Just as Malcolm X, Mumia Abdul Jamal, and Chairman Mao (not to mention Bruce Lee in silhouette) feature prominently on the cover, so the tracks on Big Red travel effortlessly through Korean music, free jazz, Ghanese Ewe song, and Archie Shepp-influenced vamps, offering an unaffected manifestation of musical globalization. The recording and engineering are fine and balanced, particularly in the lower registers, giving Ho, bassist Wes Brown, and drummer Royal Hartigan a chance to shine. Upon Fred Ho's untimely death in 2006, Ho had several finished recordings that were never released, which fortunately will be released by Innova Recordings giving listeners a chance to hear more from this jazz ambassador.
