“Irreversible Entanglements wakes the frozen body to move, the dead mind to react, the mute mouth to scream resistance.”- NPR
Driven by poet Camae Ayewa’s (aka Moor Mother) searing narrations of Black trauma, survival, and power, Irreversible Entanglements brings first-wave free jazz’s tradition of resistance acutely into the present. As creative and adventurous as any contemporary avant-garde jazz, Irreversible Entanglements offers listeners no abstractions to hide behind. This is music that both honours and defies tradition, speaking to the present while insisting on the future. Featuring saxophonist Keir Neuringer, bassist Luke Stewart, trumpeter Aquiles Navarro, and drummer Tcheser Holmes, this is “one of the most powerful and relevant works of art you’ll encounter this year” (The Quietus).
