Description

(RH Record of the week review at the bottom of this text)

"Open The Gates" is Philadelphia-based free jazz collective Irreversible entanglements’s third full length album (and first double LP length album).

Recorded at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia, across 73 minutes of music the band – featuring Camae Ayewa aka Moor Mother, trumpeter Aquiles Navarro & drummer Tcheser Holmes (who released their duo debut Heritage of the Invisible II on International Anthem last year), saxophonist Keir Neuringer, and bassist Luke Stewart – supplement their raw, organic punk-jazz sound with firsttime experiments with electronics and synthesizers.

Rush Hour Store Record of the week W52:

When looking back at 2021 it’s impossible to ignore the output of Chicago-born jazz imprint International Anthem, who’ve been on a serious roll this year with stellar albums by Damon Locks’ Black Monument Ensemble, Carlos Niño, Jamie Branch and Angel Bat Dawid & Tha Brothahood, ending the year on a high with two more beauties by Jeff Parker and Ben LaMar Gay.

Currently stuck on our turntables during this expanded lockdown however, is International Anthem #49, the tour de force that is Irreversible Entanglements’ ‘Open the Gates’, released in collaboration with New Jersey indie label Don Giovanni.

Intensity is key on their third full-length album that has Moor Mother exploring alternative histories with her powerful poetry (make sure to seek out this year’s ‘Brass’ and ‘Black Encyclopedia of the Air’ too if you haven’t already), propelled by Luke Stewart’s snakey basslines, Tcheser Holmes’ funky drums and Aquiles Navarro and Keir Neuringer on trumpet and sax respectively, for the first time augmented by electronic experimentation.

It’s this renewed and broadened high pressure sound that makes the new Irreversible Entanglements album the most urgent so far - a spirited and ecstatic whirlwind celebration of life that’s only slowed down halfway for the twenty minute free jazz suite that is ‘Water Dimension’ and the more introspective ‘Six Sounds’ and ‘The Port Remembers’. One of 2021’s best albums for sure. (Rogier).
