Jaimeo Brown Transcendence: Work Songs

Read "Work Songs" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Il bellissimo e colpevolmente trascurato Trascendence, uscito nel 2013, aveva creato in noi attese molto alte per il lavoro successivo di Jaimeo Brown, batterista e percussionista nato a Des Moines nel 1978 e poi cresciuto in una New York multi etnica e multi culturale, potendo contare sull'influenza benefica di due genitori entrambi musicisti. Con questo Work Songs il musicista americano conferma tutte le splendide potenzialità emerse nell'album di esordio e si avvia a diventare uno dei punti ...

Il trentaquattrenne batterista non è certo un esordiente e il suo curriculum è denso di collaborazioni importanti entro un ampio spettro stilistico. Negli ultimi quindici anni ha lavorato ...

Jaimeo Brown: Transcendence

Read "Transcendence" reviewed by Mark F. Turner


One of the more thought-provoking releases to come along this year, drummer Jaimeo Brown's Transcendence is an ethnomusicology patchwork with elements of the blues, gospel, rock, and modern jazz. Inspired by Gee's Bend, Alabama--an African American rural community formed in the early 1800's that is steeped in vibrant music and art--Brown's project conjures the voices of the past and imparts his own language to the town's deep history and relevant present. A drummer with explosiveness and touch, ...
