More than two years after their widely acclaimed debut album, the free jazz collective is back with the impressive track “Homeless/Global”, which heralds an album to be released next spring.
Irreversible Entanglements is a free jazz collective, whose members based in Philadelphia, New York and Washington DC are poet and MC Camae Ayewa (aka Moor Mother), also a member of the current Art Ensemble of Chicago, saxophonist Keir Neuringer, trumpeter Aquiles Navarro, bassist Luke Steward and drummer Tcheser Holmes.
Taken from the first moments of the recording session for Irreversible Entanglements’ next album, in Philadelphia, “Homeless/Global” lasts more than 23 minutes and yet seems to last only a fleeting moment. About this long and vast poem which deals with the issues of migration, exile and border violence, the poetess and MC Camae Ayewa says a little more about its creation:
“With no script and no plan, ‘Homeless/Global’ was the first thing we played. It’s a studio take that reflects what we do in concert: we go on stage without a pre-written plan and navigate through a deep and telepathic communion and that bond that unites us to each other and to the stories we want to tell; we explore known and unknown territories and reach the end together”.
Irreversible Entanglements new album will be out during spring 2020 via International Anthem and Don Giovanni.
