Irreversible Entanglements

Irreversible Entanglements are a liberation-oriented free jazz collective formed in early 2015 by saxophonist Keir Neuringer, poet Camae Ayewa (a.k.a. Moor Mother) and bassist Luke Stewart, who came together to perform at a Musicians Against Police Brutality event organized after the slaying of Akai Gurley by the NYPD. Months later the group added trumpeter Aquiles Navarro and drummer Tcheser Holmes (a duo who also performed at the MAPB event) for a single day of recording at Seizure’s Palace in Brooklyn, and the full quintet’s first time playing together was captured for this debut. In four relentless bouts of inspired fire music the instrumentalists explore and elaborate compositional ideas drawn from their deep individual studies of free jazz improvisation, but the tone of each piece is driven decisively by Ayewa’s searing poetic narrations of Black trauma, survival and power

Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri

Read "Il Meglio del 2018 Secondo Nicola Negri" reviewed by Nicola Negri

Per chi non se ne fosse accorto, stiamo vivendo un momento musicale straordinario, fatto di ricerca senza confini, ibridazioni linguistiche e condivisione di esperienze spesso agli antipodi--insomma diametralmente opposto al periodo storico, in cui l'ignoranza miope delle nuove destre vorrebbe tenerci divisi, ancorati ad un'idea identitaria ormai superata dalla storia. Dal jazz più classico alle ...

Supersonic sounds can be minimalist and meditational, ...

Read "Il meglio del 2017 secondo Luca Canini" reviewed by Luca Canini

Un altro anno di ascolti, un altro bilancio da tracciare. Dodici dischi per dodici mesi. Difficile. Difficilissimo. Ma in fondo divertente. E forse anche un po' utile: per chi compila e per chi legge. Un altro anno di ascolti, un altro anno di grande musica. Con Steve Coleman e Craig Taborn davanti a tutti per meriti ...
