Adam Rudolph's Moving Pictures: Contemplations
Open iTunes to preview, buy and download music.
Rudolph has been scrambling genres since 1977 while a member of Mandingo Griot Society, Foday Musa Suso's kora-funk experiment, but the seeds for Moving Pictures were sown in 1991's Gift of the Gnawa — with Hassan Hakmoun, Don Cherry and Richard Horowitz — which combined Moroccan and Indian rhythms as the kernal of jazz-based explorations. His expanded roster this time includes Shankar on double violin; Wah Wah Watson, electric guitar; Jihad Racy, Middle Eastern flutes; Susan Allen, concert harp; Ralph Jones, saxophones, woodwinds; and G.E. Stinson, bottleneck slide guitar — plus Rudolph on hand drums and samples. Results are as uneven as you might expect, but Rudolph lets in enough chaos to keep the experiment full of life.
Born: 12 September 1955 in Chicago, IL
Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s
