The none-more-Downtown label Knitting Factory curates this latest instalment in the Red Hot series, a second set of Fela Kuti covers. Some are oddly conservative: tUnE-yArDs and ?uestlove [both sic] hew to the established template of “Lady”. But a version of “Sorrow, Tears and Blood” sees the Kronos Quartet play the rhythm pizzicato while Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe from TV On The Radio sing in ghostly voices and whistle.
