This show reminds me of a calzone stuffed with just about every imaginable filling. Appropriately, there's a wonderful new release from Italian drummer Francesca Remigi and her band Archipelagos. This is definitely one of the finest debuts of 2021deep, contemporary and socially aware. The very respected guitarist, Michael Gregory Jackson, is also debuting his Frequency Equilibrium Koan, the difference being this music was recorded back in the 70s during the loft scene. Julius Hemphill, Abdul Wadud and Pheeroan AkLaff were with Jackson that night, recorded at The Ladies Fort on a Sony field recording cassette machine. There's some Joe Zawinulsomewhat recognizablefrom the Oles Brothers from Poland with pianist Piotr Orzechowski, west coast sax blazer Jon Armstrong, and some very current music from the South African scene. With added spice from Dan Rosenboom and the Rempis Percussion Quartet, you should be totally stuffed after this jam-packed show.
