Hermon Mehari

Hermon Mehari’s sophomore album as a leader, “A Change For the Dreamlike”, takes on a more personal tone. Written and recorded in a barn in the French countryside during le confinement, it shows only hints at the aesthetic set by his debut album. The songs are play like personal journal entries, versions and visions of wishes, fantasies, and memories. Together they create a kind of modern mixtape of dreams, in every sense of the word, in which the trumpet is a vulnerable presence. The project features a number of incredible musicians: Tony Tixier, Peter Schlamb, Ryan J. Lee, Kae Dilla, DeAndre Manning, Hugo LX, Karl McComas-Reichl, Jeff Hill and Zach Morrow. Although he already had a growing reputation, the success of Mehari's debut album ,"Bleu", put him concretely on the musical map

1. Logan Richardson, Afrofuturism, (Whirlwind Recordings, 2021). Forse il musicista che mi ha ispirato di più ha da poco pubblicato un disco eclettico. Mi piace il fatto che non abbia paura di abbracciare i suoni moderni e si senta libero di esprimersi come vuole. 2. Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um, (Columbia Records, ...
