Flying Lotus

Steven Ellison, better known as Los Angeles beat wizard Flying Lotus, has created one of the best records in 2010 with the unbelievably dense, jazz-inspired, prog-electronics of Cosmogramma. This weekend at L.A.’s Echoplex he brought this latest opus to life with his appropriately Coltrane-referencing live band Infinity — which actually features Ravi Coltrane, his cousin and son of John and Alice Coltrane. Ellison even played some brand new (!!) material. Some high quality footage (courtesy of Glenjamn) has cropped up on YouTube and it’s impressive to say the least. Check out the clips below.
