Soul-soaked jazz and free-falling dissonance with moreish momentum. Plus a wordless chorus from the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project that evokes spiritual hymnals.
A magic meeting creates soul soaked jazz and free falling dissonance with moreish momentum. Recorded at Cafe Oto in 2019, the longstanding British project Black Top founded by keyboardist Pat Thomas and multi-instrumentalist Orphy Robinson joined up with a dream team rhythm section of bassist William Parker and drummer Hamid Drake and special guest vocalist Elaine Mitchener for a blazing two-night residency. The resulting music draws on a wide range of influences from calypso and Caribbean musics to dub electronics and phonetic vocal experiments.
Elsewhere in the show, a wordless chorus from the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project, directed by Renee Baker, evokes spiritual hymnals.
