About Irreversible Entanglements

Potent free jazz group Irreversible Entanglements originated in 2015, when poet/vocalist Camae Ayewa (aka Moor Mother), saxophonist Keir Neuringer, and bassist Luke Stewart performed at an event organized by Musicians Against Police Brutality. Among the other performers were drummer Tcheser Holmes and trumpeter Aquiles Navarro, who joined the trio shortly thereafter for one day of recording at Seizures Palace in Brooklyn. Two songs composed by the instrumentalists, and one each by Neuringer and Stewart -- with Ayewa fronting all four with her intense, distressed, and defiantly delivered spoken word -- were issued as a self-titled album in 2017. The digital edition was issued that September, followed two months later by vinyl and compact disc pressings through a partnership between the International Anthem and Don Giovanni labels. ~ Andy Kellman
