A Worthy Purchase For Fans And Non-Fans Of Jazz Or Hip-Hop.

Evocative and Beautiful

violetblac

This album is full of alluring, captivating, trippy, beautiful melodies and sounds. Reminiscent of jazz fusion masters of the 1970s, well worth buying and playing for mood altering moments and introspection.

About Georgia Anne Muldrow as Jyoti

Georgia Anne Muldrow grew up in a musical home in Los Angeles, her father an instrument inventor for Eddie Harris and her mother, Rickie Byars, a singer with the Pharoah Sanders Ensemble and co-founder of Sound of Agape Rhythms. After relocating to New York, the young musician/producer/vocalist recorded seven songs for her 2005 self-released EP Worthnothings. The album got the attention of Sa-Ra and the Platinum Pied Pipers, who both asked her to write songs for them. Stones Throw Records owner Peanut Butter Wolf was also impressed by Muldrow and signed her to a two-album deal. In April 2006, Worthnothings was re-released on Stones Throw, followed shortly after by her full-length debut, Olesi: Fragments of an Earth. Sagala, credited to Pattie Blingh & the Akebulan 5 but an all-Muldrow affair, was issued in 2007 on the Ramp label.

The second Georgia Anne Muldrow full-length, Umsindo, as well as Ms. One — a production showcase featuring several singers and MCs — were both issued in 2009 on her and husband Dudley Perkins' SomeOthaShip label. (A compilation of previously unreleased material, Early, surfaced near the end of the year.) Kings Ballad, featuring a gorgeous ode to the late Michael Jackson as its title track, followed in early 2010 on Ubiquity, and it was followed only a couple weeks later by SomeOthaShip, co-billed to Perkins' Declaime alias and featuring collaborations with Black Milk, Flying Lotus, Big Pooh, and Kool G. Rap.

Muldrow remained prolific across 2011 and 2012, a period that saw the release of Vweto, Owed to Mama Rickie, and the full-length Madlib collaboration Seeds. In 2015, her "first rap album," Thoughtiverse Unmarred, was released; Muldrow acted as MC while producer Chris Keys supplied the beats. Muldrow has also collaborated with Dwight Trible, J*Davey, and Erykah Badu, and she produced the entirety of Perkins' Holy Smokes.
